After months of incessant rain, its a delight to see what is springing forth. I can’t help but marvel at how everything blooms just about the same time year after year.

Stillness

Our annual visit to see the Trumpeter Swans happened a few weeks ago.  They are beautiful to watch and listen to.  Sitting and watching them is mesmerizing. Their soft vocalizations in the depth of quietude is like a gentle call of the soul.  There is beauty in the stillness that is unexplainable. There is joy in being witness to natures beauty.

Through The Lens

This purple hyrangea in my garden is actually a bold purple color. At different times of day, at different angles, the same camera lens reveals different colors and reflections.

 

Applying different perspectives to life situations can reveal the inherent beauty that lies deeper. Not always. Still its worth it sometimes because without a different perspective, we may let a moment of awareness slip by.

Joy

Over the past few years, its become a tradition of sorts to go and visit the  trumpeter swans as they migrate to nearby areas for a few months. They are so beautiful. This year we went on a cool day and watched them for a bit. As we sat  patiently and quietly, we heard their soft trumpeting.  The moment was simply breathtaking.  Although this visit was a couple of weeks ago, when I think back to that time,  I can hear their soft trumpeting, feel the crisp air and be in the stillness of the moment. Simple moments can bring immeasurable joy.
