I have been trying to enjoy my life as it is, where it is, and see the beauty around me now, rather than just "dream" and work towards travel in the future. I say it to myself every day. I live in a beautiful place.
I love the sky.
I love light.
I love weather and wind.
At this time of year the angle of the sunlight is lower. The leaves are gone from many of the deciduous trees, and many are still sporting a golden cape, allowing the light to filter thru in a different way than in summer.
The shadows and evergreens were dark, and where the light came thru it was glowing.
The air itself seemed to shimmer.
(Because I only hand my little point and shoot camera I was unable to capture the more subtle displays.)
So, this is the beauty I found in my own world yesterday.
It was brief and changing, much like a sunset, but it was thrilling to behold!
What magic will I see today?
