It is not likely that posterity will fall in love with us, but not impossible that it may respect or sympathize; so a man would rather leave behind him the portrait of his spirit than a portrait of his face.

The CaptureYour365 prompt for today is Portraits. As I’ve mentioned previously, the sunflowers, to me, have personalities. Some are serious, some are silly, some are just plain beautiful.
It’s been raining off and on here today. The grass needs mowed, the tomatoes need harvested, and there is a lot of weeding to be done, but it will have to wait until things dry out a little.
My new challenge/project has been temporarily derailed. The challenge was to train to run a 5K. Once again my knees have declared that I am not going to be a runner. My left knee in particular is giving me tons of grief and pain, and if it doesn’t improve over the next day or two, I’m going to have to see a doc. Phooey. I was doing pretty well, too, until Thursday’s walk/run.
My father-in-law claims my knee hurts because I’m getting old. Phooey on that, too.
Every man’s work, whether it be literature, or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself.

I guess that’s about it from me for today. Thank you for stopping by. How’s your weekend going so far? If we are very lucky, we might get one of those spectacular, after-the-rain, sunsets. I’ll keep an eye out. If it looks like that might be the case, let’s meet down at the Point. Sunset is at 7:45 PM. I’ll be the one hobbling around. NOT like an old lady, but like an injured athlete.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
Today’s joys: Tart cherry juice spritzer; enforced rest and time to read; M’s assistance in getting some of my chores done today; love and hugs; watching the rain.
One more for those who think the sunflowers should have googly eyes:
