Life Comes at you Fast



The top photo is of a mushroom in my front yard the day it spread itself out for view.
The bottom picture is that same mushroom 24 hours later.

Grab today and hold on to every minute of it. Sometimes 24 hours can make major changes in the way things look.

Excellent advice. Carpe Diem! Though in the mushroom's case it is trying to reproduce while conditions are best. So you could also say "Take every opportunity for love when it comes and don't wait for when it may be convenient."

"Grab today and hold on to every minute of it. Sometimes 24 hours can make major changes in the way things look." Very true statement!

Thanks for the well wishes and hugs for us. Dorf's prognosis is not good. I'm hoping another 24 hours will help me see this differently...

On another note, How 'bout them 'boys?

I would have never imagined mushrooms in Florida. I always think of them in the forests and damp fields of the northwest. We've got lots of different kinds popping up all over the place. I do look at them and think of their short lives, but I've never looked metaphorically. Excellent advice.

Robin said, "I would have never imagined mushrooms in Florida." Don't ask me how I know this, but the majority of psychedelic mushroom for purchase originate in Florida...

We got a colony of mushrooms in one of Mrs. F's potted plants in the house. It's wild how much they can grow in a day and then wither by the next. Nice pics.

We get those things in one spot in the backyard. They do pop up fast, don't they?
