The Dandilion Perspective

Driving home today, I noticed how beautiful the surrounding landscape was; waves of green dotted--in some cases quite densely--with splashes of brilliant yellow. It was really quite stunning. The same scene in my backyard would be frowned upon.

Why? How can something that is so beautiful in one setting be looked upon so negatively in another?


A weed is only a weed if it's growing somewhere it isn't wanted. Or isn't valued. A culinary artist will view a dandelion through very different eyes than a residential gardener.

When you're promoting a product or service, you need to make sure your dandelion is appealing to the chefs in the crowd, otherwise your message is going to fall victim to the gorker.

Totallie my opinion. What do you think?

P.S.: A little something for...
