I used to be an artist.  My medium of choice oil and canvas.  Years ago that medium changed to soil.  As our farm evolved over the last few years function began to outweigh form, yet pretty is what continues to make me happy.

I sat down a while ago to photograph a few sunflowers I have in the house with expectations of prettiness to make me happy.  From behind the mechanical extension that still does not feel entirely a part of me though I feel more than slightly melancholic.  The slight downward turn of their heads feels more an ending than a beginning.

A little piece of string helps to lift their heads again.  

If only everything could be fixed by a little piece of string.
