The way I see it, nature (and the ability to enjoy nature) is a gift. I really enjoy watching the creatures that grace my back yard. And, even though I don’t have a green thumb, I enjoy seeing the colorful flowers, planted long ago, that still bloom there every year.
It is a beautiful spring day, perfect for being outside. And, for me, today is extra special because it is Easter. I have been reflecting on my blessings, of which there are many!
Happy Easter! I wish you all a wonderful day!
Happy childhood memories cross my mind. Those days are gone but not forgotten.
I find myself becoming cynical and I long to regain the hopeful spirit I had as a child.
I want to recapture the spirit of play and feeling of wonder with each new morsel of knowledge. I want to color and daydream and skip and laugh everyday.
It can be hard to squeeze the nature of a child into the responsible adult, but I am trying.
Taking photos has been one way to re-examine the world around me and see things in a new light.
There is wonder all around me just waiting to be discovered.
