This is a close-up photograph of a Taraxacum officinale – a dandelion, which is the symbol of highest vitality. It is also the symbol for the transience of existence and the awakening of the soul. This photo was taken when I visited my grandparents. The dandelion was standing in the afternoon sun and leaned towards my grandparents.
