Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.
― Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic
Below is the original photo used to create this image. I found this lovely white bloom outside of a restaurant in Bon Air, VA. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
