The Eye of the Beholder
Although I try very hard not to take the beauty of the world around me for granted, sometimes things just get away from me. Life happens, the volume of the noise in my head turns up to MAX, and I miss what I call 'special moments.' These are moments of such intense beauty that time slows down, and I get an ache in my chest as I realize that I can hear the heart beat of the earth and of the life around me and it is my heartbeat, as well. We are all one.
A special moment was delivered my way this morning in the incarnation of this mullein plant covered in morning dew.
