There are many things I didn’t appreciate when I was younger. I was always in a hurry to be somewhere, do something, achieve the next thing. As a result, I became impatient, impulsive and impetuous. All are signs of youth, and not that uncommon.
These days, I am still impatient, but I have learned to be more thoughtful and more appreciative of things I once took for granted. I understand that it is usually more prudent to be contemplative and considerate. I have learned to be grateful for incidents in everyday life that spark an instance of quiet contemplation.
As always, [ keke ] inspires me to step back and just enjoy the beauty of her craftsmanship. I placed several of her recent releases on the floor of my platform and just stood there, admiring these small objects, a sigh of wonderment passing my lips. Pushing them together, that was my photograph. Perhaps it is an appreciation that extends only to me, but it was one of those little moments that brought me a sense of awe and admiration; a little moment that left me happy to take a slow, deep breath and smile.
Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

I had a ‘zen moment’ reading that and took a deep breath with you. Feeling so relaxed now.
I’m so glad 🙂 I hope you were having your moment as I “rested my eyes” during the short thunderstorm we had this afternoon!
You captured [keke]’s work so beautiful.It is always interesting what you wrote with your blogs. Like Chericolette said before, everybody should take the moments to read your blog too and not only to look at the photos.
Thank you so much, Aida. I realise that photos are the focus of the post, but I am truly grateful to people who actually read what I write ❤
