This is a post in pics. Last night, before attending a high school drama production my stepson was part of, I went for a solo saunter in the woods. By the end of the evening, I was nourished, fed, and inspired by a multitude of influences: the woods that surrounded me, the river that flowed beside the trail,
the sky in sprawl above in a budding spring blue,
the artistic talents of a high school senior,
and the incredible beauty and power of this young man, who is simply a brilliant dancer.
I am continually amazed and delighted by how much bounty and abundance surrounds me every day. Inspirational people, places, and experiences abound in every direction. Please remember.
We need more of this in our lives: fuel, nourishment, inspiration, healing. We need to remind ourselves, over and over and over, how rich and delicious and precious life is. And the sweet people around us – the ecosystems we find ourselves amid (whether natural or man-made) – will remind us, if we listen with our hearts open, clear from obstruction.
