I go for a walk/run a couple of times a week and love looking for interesting things, often stopping in my tracks to pick it up or take a picture. Pretty rocks, dew colored leaves, a tiny object on the ground, or this heart shaped leaf. Nature is gorgeous and if you slow down and look around there is so much beauty around us.
When I was younger I fell in love with the books ‘Anne of Green Gables’ and ‘Emily of New Moon’, because the writing is like poetry and the author does so well describing the beauty of everyday things.
I’ve always been drawn to the beauty around me, poetry and art, it just speaks to my soul. A gorgeous movie that evokes a feelng of awe, pretty pictures and paintings, and simple indulgences like a fire in the fireplace and a Fall candle. Life is full of simple treasures if you look aorund and notice them.
Fall is especially a time when poetry is all around us. Ombre colored leaves and bright pumpkins on doorsteps. I walk and I take it all in, breathe the cool, fresh air, and I am grateful.
What simple things do you enjoy?
