On the walk today I stopped and looked closely at this dandelion just opening. Was amazed at the details that I hadn’t noticed before like the ragged edge of each petal. It reminds me of all the subtle things we miss or don’t acknowledge that add beauty and depth to our lives.
I am fascinated by the architecture of spider webs. They aren’t easy to photograph with a cell phone but the lighting and time of day allowed me to capture this one perfectly. Webs remind me of the connection in the world and how everything is interwoven. These also remind me that we each spin our […]
