This week, make some magic.
“Everywhere we look, complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh ~
Isn’t that the truth – complex magic of nature is everywhere. Many times missed while frantically moving to keep up with our hectic schedules, yet slowing down to notice the everyday magic brings joy and peace into our lives.
Do you take the time to notice how beautiful the trees are dressed in colorful Autumn leaves? What about after they have shed those glorious colors, do you observe the magic of their existence?
Nature is filled with magic – our existence is magical. Your heart beats, your lungs breathe, you digest your food without even thinking about it. Our thoughts become creations in words, paintings, buildings. Mother nature shares her creations with us daily in a spider’s web that appear overnight, bees pollinating, the beautiful patterns and actions of butterflies and dragonflies. All this along with the wonderful sounds and smells of nature which can’t be captures in a photo.
“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.” William Shakespeare
May you find magic in nature to embrace on a daily basis in the shadow on the floor, the curtain dancing in the morning breeze, snow covering the earth, breathing the fresh air of the ocean breeze, floating in a kayak on a lake, jumping in a mud puddle, or seeing a beautiful reflection in water. Simple things in nature are free for all to share.
Be childlike. Below is a photo of my 13 month old grandson who helped us see magic in a lone leaf dancing across the road and in his moving shadow.
