Paces of life…

Watching others busying themselves is my amusement lately while I take time out from routines and duties to refresh myself. It has been too long since I have been able to stay still in one place, just be tranquil, with empty thoughts. This luxury of unfilled time will last only a brief while. Time is precious. I watch others do their routines such as this Bee and Fly on a summer Dahlia and I am grateful for the ordinary, underappreciated, normal paces of life. Soon I will rejoin the busyness and be productive again with a passion that comes from this immeasurable restorative respite.

Reasons why…

This picture of Tigger, years ago, serves as a reminder for me to STOP and spend some time outdoors, just being one with life and nature. I thought it appropriate to use it as my 300th post. How rewarding this blog experience has been for me over the years.

My primary reason for beginning to blog was to share images with long distant family and friends. Silently, partly subliminally, I was also fulfilling a desire to write as a naturalist. This blog has allowed me to write in a manner that fits my life schedule. I have yet to figure out how to have the time necessary for any lengthy writing projects.

I am blessed. My hours outdoors are gifts. To be able to retain a tiny portion of these experiences via the camera is a “Miracle Respectfully Preserved” that I revel in sharing with each of you. Each of your “likes” and comments been a treasure for me. THANK YOU and keep enjoying the miracles, big and small (are there really any small ones?!) around you!
