Ghost Orchid

Does the elusive flower decide to not bloom because there is no one there to tell her how beautiful she is?  Does she forget to unleash her fragrance because no one will ever venture far enough to smell her essence?   Beauty needs no external witness or validation to exist in nature.  If the beauty we create is not sought out or isn’t openly appreciated by others, let us not be discouraged.  We are beautiful because it feels good to be so.  So much joy is gifted to the one who makes their world more beautiful, even if they are the only one to experience it.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and in the heart of the creator.
