This pink magnolia tree faithfully blooms every spring and is just beautiful. I walk out to it camera in tow many times a season and it’s always beautiful. Without fail. Regardless.

Not just on blue days but in the rain and fog too.

If only we could be like that too. That would be awesome.beautiful flowersipeterI struggle to… to hear my inner voice reminding me to be gentle and have a quiet spirit when my surroundings don’t want me to… but days like today it’s easier to hear it and listen to the beauty spoken around me.

Thank you for listening to the thoughts that have been tumbling around in my head.
