Weird Feelings and Flowers

I went to a board meeting of our trade association tonight. Fancy restaurant, lots of very pricey wine. I was nominated to a senior leadership post. I couldn't say no, since I'm not "out of the closet" with these folks on my discernment yet.

I feel like I've got my feet in two different worlds, yet I don't fully belong to either.

Very strange sensation, indeed. I don't like being neither fish nor fowl. I just want to settle into being a duck-billed platypus, dagnabit, and be done with it.

Okay, speaking of neither fish nor fowl, here's a picture of one of our pond flowers. The plant from whence it came has just looked spindly and unimpressive for several months, and then, lo and behold, this amazing flower appeared. It doesn't look like anything I've ever seen before. Aren't God's creations marvelous things?

Praying for Quotidian Grace, Mr C, and all of the folks who may be in the path of Hurricane Rita...

That flower looks like a crinum lily or something like that. I believe what I think of as heirloom or passalong plants.
