Step Into Spring

I picked up my camera and started walking through the house,
counting 30 steps, then stopped, looked around, and started clicking.
This was my first look at the world outside today, and (surprise, surprise) 
it is still raining. Spring is here, in the dogwood growing outside my
dining room window, and in the lush green grass. 
Then I turned and saw the flowers on a teacup hanging on my wall.
I thought of the flowers being watered and nurtured outside, and the 
artistic flowers painted on this tea cup. I wonder who painted it and
how long ago that was? 
It is so tempting to see only the rain, only the gray sky and clouds, 
to see only the mud and the obstacles we create in our own minds.
Something is unleashed in us when we choose to see the beauty.
Try picking up your camera, any kind of camera, take 
30 steps from where you are, and capture what you see right there.

  1. I like the way you're making the best of the rain — what a fun way to take a photo! I'm going to try the 30 steps, but may find myself outside the house. The teacup photo is lovely! Hope you get sunshine soon!
