Just back from a few days in the city, which I will write about in the coming days. Am filled with much GRATITUDE at the moment. Pretty much always am, but a tad more than usual and thought as we start in a new year, it would make for a good post. So much of my life philosophy, which many of you know, is that there is so much beauty swirling about us all the time. We just have to notice it and revel in it. While there can be so much bad/negative around us, we must find the good. It is a life lesson instilled in me by my father. It is absolutely a mindset that requires constant maintenance even for the most optimistic. This singular flower encapsulating my wish for us all—to enjoy every little bloom.
