Artist's Message Printed on Back Cover:
Did you know that daisies are so adaptable and hardy that they are found everywhere on Earth except Antarctica?
We often draw up excuses for ourselves for not accomplishing our goals and milestones, blaming our lack of resources - time, energy, money, skills, you name it - or even procrastinate by telling ourselves "I will begin when I have enough __ . " But what if there is never enough, and we spend our whole lives waiting for a day that would never come, only to realise at the end of our days that we never truly accomplished anything? This quote is meant to serve as a reminder to make the most of our circumstances and do the best that we can, with the resources that we have, no matter where we are. After all, the best time to start is now.
