Last week I set out for a photo walk on my own and wasn’t sure where to go. The thought came to me that if I just go to a familiar place (my favorite park) and just stay in one little area, maybe I would see things I had not noticed before.
This proved to be true.
Under a big old tree I noticed so many little things that I usually overlook, Near the end of my little adventure I was looking at leaves and seeing that change in color that I mentioned the other day.
And here was this cute little ladybug.
And there was the light,
and the soft breeze that stirred the leaves,
and the tiny black dots on the bug…
And the awareness that no matter how small or insignificant, every creature in the Universe matters. Every one.
