orange you glad that
you can stumble at sights and
gasp at their beauty?

i am currently reading a book that gives credit to the flower as being the first object that had no utilitarian purpose BUT awakened a "perceiving consciousness" in human beings. Inspiring Jesus to teach us to contemplate the flowers and learn from them how to live - as well as Buddha claiming the origin of Zen came from the simple response of a smiling realization of beauty.

this flower is what they speak of.
