It's a winding road

The other day my sister sent me a clipping. Nothing else in the envelope, just a cartoon. It referenced a giant ball of twine, and said so much. So how does a ball of twine connect to wildflowers? Or giant catsup bottles, or the Kearney Arch? Through my Dad. Along the way to the Great Pyramids or the Temple at Angkor, there were always moments for the minor notes and oddities. We learned an appreciation for so much, and you might say for so little. We don't need to see the Taj to go wow! A milimeter wide oak flower does the trick too. And the occasional gift of a ball of twine speaks volumes.
