Alligator Abundance

I couldn’t do too much today but here in Cornwall it was like a lesson in beholding the sheer abundance of nature and the immense comfort it can bring. No matter how I feel, I know there will always be surprising beauty waiting in the wings to be noticed. Every walk on part happens around me whether I take the time to really see it or not. It still performs its magic, but even more so if I simply tune in when the curtain is up.

On this sunniest of Sundays, I let myself be fully enthralled from dawn to dusk. Held in the embrace of one of those days that took my breath away with those tiniest of beautiful moments. Whether it was seeing a bee mistake my bright yellow compost bag for a flower as its shadow then danced with itself. Or my giggling delight at capturing the face of a fish as it flipped above water reflected in the evening light.

Such teeny weeny moments that never fail to reach in and touch me deep inside. Nature’s daily show, all abundant miracles in themselves ?
