For those who don't know...I'm participating in the month long challenge to write about one moment a day for 31 days...make sure to check in daily to see what I discover about my surroundings.
It's amazing what happens when you slow down. As I turned the deadbolt on my front door, my eyes caught spectacular color rising from the horizon. Above to the left was the white disc moon glowing in all of its splendor against a dark periwinkle sky. I noticed to the right there seemed to be a rising flame of pink and orange. Hoping that it was the sunrise, I jumped into my car (okay, I didn't jump) and began driving. After I got out of town and drove by the airport, I noticed it seemed the clouds were playing in the sky. Thick, billowy, and moving. I wanted to watch the clouds longer, but I couldn't...the road demanded my eyes. After getting out of the town and onto the straightaway that goes through some farms, I discovered it wasn't just clouds that were playing...it was fog. And beautiful fog it was. I felt as if I were in the Secret Garden and the Scottish lowlands...it was breathtaking. I wanted to stop and stay there for a day and rest in the eerie and magical and mystical fog. Yet, the wonders of nature didn't stop there. After I pulled into the parking lot at school, a small speckle of glitter caught my eye. It was snowing glitter all around my headlights. It was a beautiful way to start my day. I'm glad that I took the time to look, to search, to gaze at the beauty that fully surrounded me.
