“Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in the magic will never find it!” — Roald Dahl
There are times we seem to be stuck in a rut. We forget how precious life is. We take people for granted. We lack appreciation for all we have and are able to do. Lately, I’ve been absent from my blog, but I’ve been totally present in life.
These days I am doing little writing. I am busy traveling to visit with loved ones. I’m exploring the neighborhood and beyond, taking in the colors and scents of spring…my spirit is enjoying this, but my allergies disagree, ha! Still taking some photos with my new camera, but not getting any better with post processing, probably because that part of photography is too much like work rather than fun. I’ve made some quilts. I’ve gone on a few outings with friends. Surprisingly enough, I’ve actually been to gatherings AND have lots of fun! (Of course, I did have to go home and have some down time afterward…)
I suppose it sounds like I am indeed in a rut, not doing many new things. When I do things with new eyes or refreshed enthusiasm I find many gems along the way.
Here’s wishing you the opportunity to get out and enjoy this lovely spring day. I hope your spirit is refreshed and your allergies not irritated. And remember when you’re just enjoying yourself and not looking for treasure you’re most likely to find it. Tell me what you’ve been up to.
