Beauty on my way

Noticing and slowly taking in all the beauty of spring.

Last Sunday, I had a long walk around the neighbourhood, 5000 steps! I spotted this rose bush on my way.

The poppies are gorgeous in a park close by.

During the week I walked by a path of gorgeous peonies. I wish I could put their fragrance in a bottle and bring it home.

And yesterday, at lunch time, I was surprised with the beauty of these alliums in the university campus.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.”  

Buddha

Wishing a great week to you, and remember to slow down and enjoy a little bit of beauty on your way. It can be the beauty of the flowers if you are in spring or the beauty of the leaves if you are in the autumn. It can be a beauty of a smile, a hug, eye contact with a strange coming in your direction or a simple thank you when you weren’t expecting it.

Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.

Rumi

Wildflowers are blooming in my garden. They are pretty, each one in its own way. They are looking for space, sharing the Earth and the sunshine.

i need to give a boost to my creativity.

i have lots of ideas popping up, but i’m always procrastinating, saying it’s ok if i leave it for tomorrow and then at the end of the week and month i’ve done nothing!

i need discipline, routine, but at the same time, i want freedom.   i know, for sure, that my projects should involve photography and words so i decided to register what i notice around me, little things along the way.

i’ll give it a try, i’ll post every day a photography and few words that come to my mind. hope you enjoy!

here is my first ‘noticing’

the exact moment when we discover that we can bloom,

each one in a particular way,

but nevertheless showing off our true essence.
