Artful Living

the thick of it

Last week, while taking the dog on a walk, I happened upon these glorious thistles.
I truly cannot imagine designing something so positively perfect!
Just look at this thistle, reminds me of fireworks and a pathetic creature, near and dear to my heart…..

Eeyore loved thistles. This is one of my favorite sketches from Winnie-the-Pooh. I love the way Pooh remained so positive and sunny whilst Eeyore just could not be bothered. I think these tasty thistles would keep Eeyore going. Are you Pooh or Eeyore?

How do you remain sunny-side up in the thick of life!
(I added this book, “The Tao of Pooh” after a comment told me about this book!)
