To Bee A Worker!

The queen bee's life is totally overrated. All she does is lay eggs, lay eggs. She takes one nuptial flight. That one stuns her with enough fertile power to be trapped in the hive forever. The workers, the sexually undeveloped female, have the best life. They have fields of flowers to roll in. Imagine turning over and over inside a rose.”

Frances Mayes, Under the Tuscan Sun

Beautiful!
