When is the last time you sat down on the grass under a tree and just looked with your eyes and heard with your ears? Listen to the birds in the trees, to the cicadas singing their song, the laughter of the neighbor’s children. Do you see the ants carrying their bundles through the grass or up the tree bark? Look at the veins in the leaves of a tree or a flower, can you see the pattern of the flower petals, or the pattern of the leaves on the branches?
Would you see this tiny toad if he jumped somewhere near you? Or are you too busy to notice the little things in life?
My challenge for you today, is to go outside to a green place, and look around until you find something that moves you, or makes you take notice. Find something that makes you say, “Oh, cool!”. And then come back here and tell me what you found!
Thank you Jessica, for the great idea. 🙂
