While looking for one of Brother David's videos I happened on an old quote that had been posted months ago. I found it to be quite profound and thought it was worth sharing with my Sjogren's sisters and brothers.
Dryness promotes the formation of flower buds...flowering is, after all, not an aesthetic contribution but a survival mechanism. -Ann Haymond Zwinger from The Mysterious Lands
Ann's book looks very interesting. The book is written about four of the great deserts of the Southwest. Desert lands...dry. OK, I admit I won't be reading this while in a flare but I will be reading this soon.
