Beauty in Simplicity

When I am beginning to feel overwhelmed by my work, questioning decisions and feeling as though I am losing my way, I take time to look at the world in a new place.  It gives me pause to recognize that grandeur comes in the smallest of details and steps.  Where in the rush of life, we miss some of the most wonderful things that occur when we pause and simply breath in the space around us.

Such was the cause this week, when a world wind of activity left me spinning.  But an afternoon at the U of M Landscape Arboretum with Caroline gave me moment to see incredible textures, colors, details and beauty.   While I will never be a landscape or nature photographer by trade, it most definitely renews my heart and fills my spirit!
