|rain drops on a branch...4/1/2012|
I have to apologize for being lax about posting anything major for a few weeks now...but there is a method to my madness in having been away from serious writing here. In part, I have been dealing with a lot of physical pain, in my upper and lower back, as well as both shoulders, which has kept me in sheer misery and Ibuprofen has become a close friend.
But the other part is that I have been taking the time to do some things that I haven't done in a very long time...and that is to observe my surroundings outside...the skies, the changes in the trees, the birds, the flowers blooming and watching a patch of Rhubarb begin its Springtime growth. To say the least, I have been completely fascinated! (Which has led to a distraction that has kept my mind off my physical pain!)
It may sound silly, but I have long missed being able to do this...life had caught me up and swept me along down various roads, which took me away from the very thing that I have loved...paying attention to the world just outside my door. It has meant a lot to me, and given me a great peace to be able to see our flowers bloom, smell their dainty scents; being able to watch birds in the trees sing their Springtime songs; even watching a geese couple that have stopped by the field out back of my home, at least twice daily.
Simple things...that don't cost a dime. This is "living".
Not to spoil the blogs that will follow this, I will give you a glimpse of the photos that I have took as well:
|setting sun kissing the clouds good night|
|buds that will become leaves|
|Daffodils peaking through the cold earth|
|our first flower to bloom|
|two birds singing in the early morning|
|one of the geese...|

Thanks for stopping by!
