Álainn: The Beauty of a Daffodil (& brief update)

100_8525 [Daffodils]-AW (PNG)

To stay true to the Irish spirit of this day, I have used entitled this photograph with the Gaelic term "Álainn" which I am led to understand, equates to "beauty." These daffodils were picked from our garden today, for they would have inevitably wasted away from the heat if they were not promptly extricated. It is no wonder that the ancient Greeks thought so highly of their species (the narcissus) describing them in myth as beyond compare (for such was the figure characterized). The beauty of God's creation is astounding, and its complexity as well - to think that contained within a cell is a molecular factory of sorts is beyond expectation of such seeming simplicity.

Writing Update: A few days ago the iBookstore and NOOK accepted the extended edition of my 400 Years of Silence (Play) and Short Story. I may be posting the additions to this blog by revision of their corresponding posts.


About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
