|I am not sure if its the meditations, or the books I have been reading but I seem to be taking in my environment and nature with an added sense of awareness and reflection these days. Do you ever catch yourself seeing something you have seen hundreds of times, but one day see it with a new set of eyes? Roads I’ve been traveling for years look different- a tree I never knew existed stands in the middle of the field- has it always been there? Now I actually go out seeking it- what else have I been so closed minded too or maybe it just seemed I was too busy being busy to care and notice. I can’t go back- I simply notice it more now and take the time to take it in.
I’m even trying new things- like Yoga. While we were away we got in a yoga class on the lake. It was a perfect setting to try a class I should have done years ago. I really enjoyed the stretch and movements but I was also happy that I packed a few bands and tools to get in a dock side workout too. “Never Leave Home Without It”.
I love this picture from our recent 48 hour getaway to our friends place in the Muskokas. The sunsets seemed made for me to soak in. I’ll be honest, at this moment I was reminding myself to enjoy the quiet and solitude since the next step from there was to head back to Ottawa and pick up the kids from camp.
