you say goodbye, i say hello
it occurs to me that even when we're out of our element, we can take those small moments to take in new things...like the beautiful accents of the waitresses at the italian restaraunt tuesday night - the deep richness of great coffee - the rhythmic sounds of the metro wheels that can rock you to sleep - the clicking on of a light bulb when something finally makes sense. and yes, my sweet brother staying up late to pick me up for the airport. before i had always taken care of getting back and forth - and suddenly it felt good to be taken care of. very good actually.

and the lighting in that shot is lovely. it reminds me of a turner painting. his lighting is absolutely mesmerizing and captivating.
How did I miss this beautiful sunset last night? Maybe it's the tall trees that surround our house since we ate dinner out on the deck.ReplyDelete
Yes, there's lots of small things that do slip passed us, if we don't take the time to notice them. Glad you took the time!

Welcome home Char...it's the moments that stay with us, those sweet moments that make it all worth while. And being met at the airport and not having to deal with it all is definately one of those sweet moments!ReplyDelete

Welcome home...hope you get some well-deserved rest this weekend.
Hope you time away was good... looks like you saw somethings with "fresh" eyes. I love it!ReplyDelete
Very wise words. Sometimes it those little things we can notice, even if we don't have a lot of time to stop and enjoy them, that can make even boring, exhausting tasks better.ReplyDelete
Life is good...ReplyDelete
I've been feeling a little melancholy today. I'm glad I decided to pop over here and read of your appreciation of the simple things in life. I needed the reminder.ReplyDelete
I love those moments. I always say that the important things are the simple ones and I rather prefer one of those second or minutes, than something material. It can be you day perfect or even make you happy when you're having a bad day.ReplyDelete
that's what brothers and sisters do: take care of each other...though sad to say some don't.ReplyDelete
It's good that you belong to the first group :)
Have a nice day char.
beautiful photo...and yes, i agree, there is something so powerful of being out of our element and mindful of that fact - it heightens our awareness if we allow it to. warmly,sReplyDelete
sighing for all the beautiful moments of our lives. What a poem of a post.ReplyDelete
