For days I've been watching a brave little cosmos battle with the elements in the garden. It's my first flower of the season and I wasn't expecting to see any of its kind come into bloom for a few more weeks. It's not fully grown, probably not even half grown but it's decided to do its own thing regardless.
Today it was once again being beaten badly by the wind and I just had to rescue it and bring it inside. I think the Cabin Fever is getting at me, I've been talking to it every time I go to the kitchen and see it on the window sill. You will have to take my word for it that it is smiling and telling me to be brave, I will be better soon.
I read somewhere that about 40% of the population experience vertigo at some point in their lifetime so I can't pretend I'm Robinson Crusoe. But it's a first for me and an experience I'm not enjoying. I'm a bit of a homebody most of the time but now that I can't drive I think of lots of things I'd like to be doing that require a car trip, places I'd like to visit.
On the bright side I've been overcome with kindness from strangers, I must get a "help me" look on my face when my world goes for a spin. And I'm grateful that my family are so caring and helpful.
And I'm lucky I have a brave little cosmos to inspire me.
On another topic, Blogger doesn't like me at the moment. It's being choosy about on which blogs it will allow me to leave comments. And sometimes it will let me comment but refuse to acknowledge who I am, insisting that I am Anonymous.
