A little frivolity is needed in these oh-so-difficult times.

So how about …

… a whimsical tree … dancing lollipops … an enquiring bird … three sort-of-owls trying to discern what the blazes is going on in the world these days … and flowers, bright flowers of hope, popping out – from behind the tree – on top of the tree – on the side of the tree – inside the tree – emerging from the bottom of the trunk of the tree?

The flowers, the hope – always there – even though it might be difficult to see, experience, acknowledge some days.
