Jun. 28 at 7:56 am: WOW, Mckay! I was hoping to read a new Haiku of yours. This is so beautiful. And it made me think how amaong its own throng the daisy would never be recognized or even given one fleeting glance, yet a stand-alone flower would attract so many visitors, same is with people.

Always means the universe when you comment on my work.
