I remember so vividly the first time a wildflower––any plant, actually––spoke to me.

I was in my early 20s––careening thought the forest on my mountain bike. I loved mountain biking––it forced me to be the exact opposite of my default nature, which is slow and thoughtful. Careening down a mountain path requires hyper focus to the terrain, and you have to look at where you want to go, not at the rocks you want to avoid. So there I was, careening. And I zoomed past a profusion of purple right by the trail. It was like a little choir of purple. My biking mind, racing ever forward, said Keep Going, but my child mind said, emphatically, Turn Back. Go see what that was.

I turned back, and found a little patch of wild irises. I don’t know that I’d ever seen anything so beautiful before. I pulled my bike off the the trail and just savored their beauty.

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been the same since.

Some part of me was so deeply touched by their beauty, and I just took that into myself, and I’ve carried it with me to this day.
