I really had no idea what I was going to say this morning. I had actually roughed something out last night, but I was totally unhappy with it.
And then a received a most wonderful comment from Joanna, and as I was typing my response, I thought… YES… there’s my blog. And this is the quote that she shared with me:
“The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world. “
And my reply:
“Oh So True… but that’s the trick isn’t it.. to see the dandelion as though it were a miracle. And maybe I am just fortunate, but I have always seen it that way. It still blows my mind that a flower can grow out of what seems like nothing at all. When you can see the world with wonder, then everything is Wonderful!!”
And I guess that is really what is at the heart of my blog and my photographic journey. ”Seeing the Beauty in All Things”… has been my motto from day one, but maybe it should have read “Seeing the Miracle in All Things”.
We take SO much of life for granted. We walk past a million amazingly, intricately, subtly, gorgeous things a day, on the way to our cars, or in our very own driveways. And how often do we notice them. Life is an insanely precious gift! And it’s not until it is threatening to leave us, that we bother to realise this.
Don’t wait until it’s too late…. accept the gift NOW. And in everyone now, from now on.
