In the Science Times last week, Joanna Klein wrote this about sunflowers:
“At dawn, whole fields of sunflowers stand at attention, all facing east, and begin their romance with the rising sun. As that special star appears to move across the sky, young flowers follow its light, looking up, then over and westward, catching one final glance as the sun disappears over the horizon.
“At night, in its absence, the sunflowers face east again, anticipating the sun’s return.”
This seems a fine metaphor about how we should live and shape our actions … like sunflowers … turning toward the light, optimists — not foolish optimists but wise optimists, knowing what must be done for our planet and turning our efforts in that direction.
