Pause & See

patient wait for spring
winter's persistence lingers
bending not breaking


 I try to see something new each day. The art of seeing is essential to any creative work in my humble opinion.  My favorites are the ones that stop me in my tracks!  Like so many folks I have a very busy mind that I struggle to quiet.  By creating this practice it has given me many opportunities to pause and be with a new wonder.  I love to wonder about wonders.  These little seeings can be just the jolt my creative process needs to get out of a rut.  But mostly, they provide a pause which is that moment of peace I need to heal from a frustration. These seeings are grounding for me and bring me to the present.  I will admit to laughing out loud with joy over some of my discoveries, they are a moments of childlike wonder!

  1. We too are trying to be patient as we wait for spring.

  2. Progress. Spring is starting to creep in. I think we're down to two feet of snow this morning!

    I have photos of the bobcat we've been feeding this winter. He's come back after a nine day absence.

    1. The rain last night was music to my ears! I did check out you bobcat post! Super cool...we had a bobcat a few years back.

  3. That is one very determined little tree! Hopefully soon your snow will go and the trees can shoot up without having to work for it quite so hard!

    1. Finally some slow melting here! Thanks for your comment!!
