Thoughts On A Sunny Afternoon

 We live our lives one moment at a time... with no knowledge of what lies ahead.

How much better to live it like a butterfly...

flitting from beauty 

to beauty,

drawn to the brilliance of color,

or the sweetness of fragrance.

Drinking them in, savoring them - the thirst-quenching gifts of nature.

The butterfly has no thoughts of that final blossom.

He does not squander the time he is given.

 He just keeps flying, in faith.

Just read a quote from Judi Dench that says about the same thing. Copied it off to remind myself to enjoy each moment of each day.
Beautiful post and a wonderful reminder!

Beautiful post!

Poems can never be so lovely
Nor do they have authentic power
To truly express the awesomeness
of the beauty of a flower!

I too try to live in each and every moment. We have to realize that each moment may not hold a pleasant experience though. Hopefully, we will gain knowledge of how to handle those moments as we experience them and learn how better to manage. Again, your blog is my daily inspiration. Thank you for the time you use to allow us to live through your lens.
