Poppy seed pods

I love poppy seed pods. They're perfect little seed dispensers, but more than that, for me they are a symbol of illusion (due to their association with opiates).

It is amazing to me that how I perceive how my day is going is directly related to my mood, which is directly related to the noise going on in my head, which is directly related to my hourly illusion of good, bad or indifferent. So it makes all the sense in the world to change that illusion to something very upbeat and enticing, right? Well, there is the challenge in a nutshell for me!
