Cactus Flower

July 20, 2013

cactus blossom

A neighbor gave me this little cactus. It has an infrequent blossom, which only blooms for one or two days. This one bloomed for just one day. I was so happy to see the color and delicateness of it.  It came from such a tiny little cactus, not much larger than the flower itself. Honestly, it was so drab, that I had considered getting rid of the cactus plant, because it seemed almost too much trouble to keep watering it. But just days later it bloomed. It made me realize the value of simple things that are here day in, day out… until one day they shine! Much like our lives. We are here.  Sometimes life can get drab or monotonous, but occasionally we “shine” too. So now I appreciate this little drab cactus, even when it isn’t blooming.

    Felicidades, you’re a incredible talented ARTISTA, so happy to have found your website. Please contact ALAC, perhaps we can plan on a One-Woman Show. We absolutely need Latina/Chicanas that create to help our communities preserve our traditions.
