Why the dandelion?


“As a child my friends and I could not wait for dandelions to seed. They turned from yellow flowers, found in concrete cracks, into giant white, fuzzy, fantastic things!  We called them ‘wishes’ because we would pluck them up, close our eyes, and make a wish. And then, with all the breath required for blowing out birthday candles, we'd blow so hard, hoping to release every last seed.  When the stem was bare, we'd stand and stare, watching the wind carry our wishes to some wondrous somewhere.  Even as adults yelled at us, we did not care because knew nothing of what a weed was or why wishes were not loved by everyone.  All we were aware of were these amazing things that grew up in the worst environment, such as a crack in the pavement, in our neighborhood but somehow still turned out beautiful and eventually learned to fly! Maybe the adults got it wrong.” ~ Dr. Hurt
