Most days on my morning walk I move too fast to notice the pink blossoms, the bent branch or the color of the bird singing on that bent branch, under that pink blossom. Is it that I am moving too fast or that my mind is totally elsewhere? Is that the same thing? Mind fast forward in the future to a non-existent place. Too fast. Elsewhere. Regardless, missing what is in front of me. With practice, lots of practice I see something new every day even when I take the same route. A new blossom, a wider branch, a different bird.
Are you moving too quickly to see the little bits of beauty sprinkled throughout your day like raindrops on the green grass?
The beauty is there for both of us, we only have to notice.
