Up!

21 Aug

There is a temptation these days to look down. It’s hard to hold your head up under the weight and pressure of pandemic, politics, or personal problems. But look at what we miss if we keep our eyes on our shoe-tops.

Today I will look up more. I will look for the surprise in the scenery around me. I will be alert to momentary miracles, awake to the spectacular in the common. I will expect to experience something that will make me smile or wonder or think.

Sometimes the sky painting is very brief. Clouds move, light shifts, and different brush strokes fill the ever-changing canvas. Only those who look up see the gifts…they are there, waiting for anyone who dares to move from looking to seeing.
