Faded Beauty

I snapped this out at my folks' place in the country. I love the colour and the faded feel to the flower.. beauty passing on.

Sep27 I think the film protest is very much like the Dutch caradtoon inciaddent, in that only a small someadthing is nedeed to provoke. On the one hand, the deaths are comadpletely caladlous and fooladish — the vioadlence has become far more damned than the proadducer of the movie. To read of Pakadistani chiladdren citading anti-American speech leaves me in horadror. Is this what today’s leadaders (not just in govadernadments, but among mothaders and fathers) want to fosadter, a new genaderadaadtion of hatred?Still, on the other hand, I wonadder how non-Muslims will change their peradcepadtion. It would be for the worse if Islam becomes even more negadaadtive in the views of the outadside comadmuadnity. After all, hatred will only beget hatred, don’t you think? I hope at least a few peoadple will come to their senses abouta0this.

For the fairies it is just a rose by another name.
