The Views We See

A kind neighbor magically invited David & I over to his deck to admire the view. 

Here I am after admiring that magnificent view and darling David taking the photograph. 

It caused me to think about all the views that we see, and of course the kinds of views that we see range all over the place, and include the micro views in our homes too. 

What view are you seeing right now, or recently? I’ll love to share in your view. 

If you feel like it, add a few descriptive sentences about it. 

Here are our GLADiolas standing so beautifully in the sun, which make me think of this quote by Diane Ackerman: 

“The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sunstruck hills every day.”  
– Diane Ackerman

And this wisdom by Pema Chodron: 

“You build inner strength through embracing the totality of your experience, both the delightful parts and the difficult parts.” – Pema Chodron

Audrey Hepburn wanted to chime in with this: 

“Anyone who does not believe in miracles is not a realist.”– Audrey Hepburn

Ah, yes.

    I saw I was out on a hike today and with all the grand views around me I found a tiny view of a miniature snowman sitting atop a rock that someone happily made and left for other hikers to come across. I learnt something new from that moment.. that even when surrounded by grander things, it’s the smallest thing that can bring you the greatest joy.

    How beautiful it is there. Makes me feel warm just looking. My view is a tree covered in orange leaves, Waiting for the signal to fall to the ground. I so love Fall.

    Fantabulous! My birthday week! I attended a church with beautiful stained glass all around with the morning sun shining in giving us a rainbow effect. I especially feel the Golden Glow of the universe.
