Charles Lily

Many years ago when I began to teach yoga, I taught at a gym.  ( not a great place for yoga)
One of my students was 80 years old.  As time went by, the gym and I parted ways and while I searched for a place to hold classes, Charles my 80 year old student graciously offered us his home.
One day after class, his wife asked if any of us would like some day lilies.  She was reworking her gardens and the plants needed to be divided.

She and Charles are now gone, but their beautiful lilies live on.  Some at my house and some at other's homes.  This morning when we walked one of the Charles lilies had bloomed.  I smiled and thought of Charles.
