I’ve just noticed that my last ‘noticing’ post was in May! Oh my goodness! How the time flies and I let go of things that give me pleasure so easily!
First of all: Happy new season to you!
In my part of the world, we are entering Autumn. It’s so pretty out there! I had a long walk in the woods this weekend, noticing how slowly the changes are happing, how the earth is getting ready for the winter.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
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.”
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.

Noticing how a little gesture can light up my mind. I got these beautiful tiny flowers at the grocery store today. Why not? a gift for myself, I deserve it!
It’s snowing, all grey and cold out there, now at least my living room as colour and freshness. Hoping to give a break in my mood, I don’t know if it is depression, winter blues, but I need to recharge and take care of myself.
I just love Picoult’s quote from the Spark of light! It reminds of acceptance, and I need to be reminded of it all the time.
