This week I have been anxious – chew my nails, fidget my feet – kind of anxious. Life changes so fast. The weeks are flying by…
Am I taking it all in? Do I spend too much of my time worrying about – all the things – I might be missing or not getting done?
I want to shout, “SLOW DOWN!”
But I know that wouldn’t help….life is happening….whether I have time for it or not.
So, I take a deep breath. And I notice…..the little things.
“In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.”
– Robert Lynd
There is no over thinking. No time. Just the quiet rustle of feathers and flights.
I find when I look around in wonder, even the weeds have a fascination for me.
Pretty weeds in the heart of winter, who would have thought?
Thine eyes are springs in whose serene And silent waters heaven is seen. Their lashes are the herbs that look On their young figures in the brook. -William C Bryant
When I stop obsessing over time management and busyness, many things become apparently clear.
The sky, the moon, the colors and designs. So many more miracles in the ebb and flow, if we just stop and listen, and let life happen as it should.
There is no stress in nature. No worries. No clock. No calendar.
It just is….and it’s perfect that way.
Don’t miss the little things. Because you might find…….they are not so little after all.
All the things that truly matter beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace arise from beyond the mind. -Eckhart Tolle
These photos were taken by a park near my house while hiking with the family. I did use some Photoshop filters for a painted effect on a few. I am experimenting with art. Some of my work will be on display at the Arlington Museum in April. I have been trying to see what I like, and what might be wall-worthy. Any, and all input is greatly appreciated.
