The perfect remedy for an anxious and convoluted mind!
When life grabs you by the throat with its claws...go prance off into the garden and appreciate the little things.
A stump of wood that looks like a delicious lil cinnamon roll, the Spring buds of flowers...and this insane forest of 1m high weeds growing in the vege patch!! (Behold the dandelions :-O )
I think the complacency we have soon breeds a contentious mind.
We become too bored too easily... unthankful too easily...
there is always ' more ' to acquire, something more ideal or more perfect.
And then suddenly all those years of our lives vanished...in a quagmire of anxious oblivion
where the simplicity and beauty of day-to-day was ignored in the pursuit
of all these high-and-mighty things that will perish as well.
And before we know it...we're as dead as our pursuits.
