This is a pretty lateral interpretation, I know. But I love the photo of the poppy field, and the nostalgia that poppies invoke. I didn't realize until I googled it that to associate poppies with "remembering" was an Australian thing. I have no idea where I got it. Here's the Google statement:
The Red Poppy has special significance for Australians. Worn on Remembrance Day (11 November) each year, the red poppies were among the first to flower in the devastated battlefields of northern France and Belgium in the First World War.
Anyway, because of Poppies and Rememberance, I decided to wear a shirt that has special significance to me. I spent the summer of 1999 in Cameroon, West Africa. I lived with some missionaries just outside a small village for seven weeks. During that time, the town tailor made this shirt for me as a gift (Actually, I think a different merchant ordered the shirt for me from him, as a gift). I've kept it since, and even though I rarely wear it, it brings back special memories, and I enjoy keeping it.
So today, for the poppies, I paired my Cameroon shirt with gray jeans that used to be skinnies on me but are now more boy-friend fitting. And my happiness factor is high!
Thanks Diane for terrific inspiration!
