I just walked outside to put out the trash. First crunch up and put all the recyclables in the bins. Then take all the trash cans and bags up the hill to the top of my driveway.It is an August night ,hot and humid. I am sweaty.
Then I look up and see it … a full moon lighting a cloudless ink gray sky.Walking back down my driveway I stop and just stand for a few moments looking at the beautiful light in the sky this amazing pale orb. Then I ask myself- do I ever notice? Do I take the time to notice? Sunsets? A beautiful landscape? I think if we can just stop ,even for three minutes and enjoy nature, it can be very calming and very motivating. People say there is lots of ugliness in the world but maybe, just maybe they are looking in the wrong places.
