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 incredible purple and yellow pansies.

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.
