Today was a day to just be present. To take in my natural surroundings and let the past week, past month, and past year melt away.
Today I was present to take in the blue of the sky. The green of the new leaves. The flock of white pelicans floating across the bay. The pale purple of the spring flowers. The brilliant blue butterfly that flew past me. The echo of the woodpecker at work. The warmth of the sun on my face. The wind in my hair. The sway of Charlie's tail as she ran through the woods.
The anticipation of the path ahead of me.
And the beauty of the path behind me, seen from a different perspective upon looking back.
