Tower of Power

"A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life." - Calendar Girls, a 2003 movie

I have a friend, who at this very moment is zinging his bright new yellow Corvette around curves 100 mph at a motorsports track. Remember what a risk like that does? Your eyes are scanning everything  like holographic radar and you're hyper alert. The sound of the air rushing by is so deafening, it almost seems calm and the heat coming off the engine is nothing compared to the heat coming from within your belly. Suddenly you have a moment... this is your purpose, this is why you were created. 
Standing tall and proud at the end of summer, they were still stepping into the power of their purpose. Faces turned upward, they were tracking the sun. Not just the sun, but Helios, who drives his blazing chariot across the sky daily. 
Keep painting!
