Dandelion is based on a poem written by Jim's niece, Heather Minton. Heather is a publisher's editor, just starting in her professional career. The poem's significance is that she and her younger sister, Tara were both born with Cerebral Palsy. The poem takes on a very supernatural personality as the flower speaks with a human voice of fragility, while still the hopeful and beautiful weed.
