Turning

« Quand l'idéal se déplace, 
il faut bien qu'on s'oriente différemment. 
Le tournesol reste fidèle au soleil. » ~ Jean Rostand

"When the ideal shifts, 
we must orient ourselves differently.
Sunflowers turn faithfully toward the sun."

Today, the seasons have suddenly changed. Les tournesols (the sunflowers) have bowed their heads in mourning for the hidden sun, bracing themselves against the chill of the wind and rain. Perhaps it's time to face the reality that autumn is already here. Is there no turning back?
