Kaleidoscope #768


After all, the three of us were young. It wasn’t just about the pleasure of the flesh. No, it wasn’t that simple. The flesh is easy to satisfy. It’s the heart that is insatiable, the heart that needs to love, to despair, to burn with any kind of fire…That was what we wanted. To burn, to be consumed, to devour our days just as fire devours the forest.
― Irene Nemirovsky, Fire in the Blood

 

 

Below is the original photo used to create this image. While taking an afternoon walk around Floyd, VA in the rain. Hanging baskets with a beautiful variety of flowers seemed to be outside every shop. I couldn’t resist these lavender petunias. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
