Look.


I am feeling very connected to all living things today...not in the Facebook, smart phone, internet way...but the real warm-blooded looking into another's eyes sort of way...from my sweet Max, always ready for play, to the flock of geese who were resting in the grass by my car at work, to the squirrel I narrowly missed on my street (while driving a smidge over the speed limit and then cringing), to the tiny, barely walking little, little girl with diaper-padded purple leggings, holding her dad's hand and trying to match his pace at the supermarket today. What a world I live in when I take the time to look.

Observation is one thing but CONNECTING with what you see, like you have, is so much more enriching and inspiring. Literally watching the world go by is good fun.

Isn't it wonderful to capture the essence of life? The observation, connecting with what we're actually seeing around us.

A beautiful post Kerri!

See you soon :) xxoo
PS I bet that squirrel is smiling :)

This is one of my favorite passtimes...watching people, animals, grass grow, birdies singing, squirrels gathering their winter supplies, paint drying, leaves unfurling and on and on and on. It is truly amazing how much we never observe when we are hurrying or not paying attention. Looks like you and Max are really enjoying life these days and I am so very happy for you...

I love this post and couldn't agree more. I rarely use FB but would rather spend time with my crafts and my pets - which they are always willing to help me work on. :)
