Serendipity! I was thinking about Emerson's quote recently but applying it to my experience in conversation with a person rather than an observation about a weed. In that conversation just when I was mulling over in my head questioning their virtue as yet "undiscovered by me"... this question emerged w/o thought. "Are you virtuous?" If so, in what way?" Huh, where did that come from?

The topic stirred a memory of a nearly 100 year old song. (I didn’t hear it when first recorded)

I’m looking over a four-leaf clover

I overlooked before

One is the sunshine, the second is rain

Third is the roses that bloom in the lane.

No need explaining the one remaining

Is somebody I adore

I’m looking over a four-leaf clover

I over looked before.

I can almost see a Vaudeville production of this number...

So on this September day, what a delight to see the clover blossom rising above the adjacent plants. Previously undiscovered beauty, now on display.

Best of days to the four of you!
