Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I headed out for a hike a few days ago, it was cold, snow flurries here and there and I forgot my walking shoes, my toes were getting numb in my flimsy fashionable boots. I thought I do a short little walk, but I just can’t help it, I wander. I get lost taking photos and spend so much time immersed in the magic of being outside. An hour can feel like 5 minutes. In my state of wonder, I was so surprised to stumble upon this purple flower blooming!? Maybe it only blooms when its cold and wet and gray?
And then a moth flew by full of energy, I have not seen a moth or butterfly in weeks, this little guy was full of energy flitting all about like it was the middle of the summer. I was wandering in circles waiting for it to land, it was worth the wait. I love the wings they look like a warm woven poncho with soft fringe.
Each day I hike I keep finding something new to see, to learn, to share… mother nature keeps reminding me that miracles happen all the time.
Have a beauty ✻ filled week.
P.S. I also stumble on this netflix find in the instant queue, have you seen Rivers and Tides? Andy Goldsworthy is an amazing artist working with time. He goes outside day after dreary day and co -creates with nature. I’m so inspired by his work, his focus, his desire to make something beautiful.
