These were scenes from my morning walk on April 21, exactly two weeks after my (once-in-a-lifetime, no doubt) 80 degree birthday. Can something be beautiful AND sad at the same time? I personally think so. It’s a good reminder that life isn’t either/or, black or white. And it’s a good reminder about practicing present moment awareness. Just observing, paying attention, drinking it all in…especially that blue sky.
