I saw this insightful reminder…an Annie Dillard quote…. in an amazing book I’ve been reading and rereading:  “Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment” by Katrina Kenison.   Magical Journey is bursting with wonderful quotes, wisdom and insights …this Annie Dillard quote being one of them. Katrina Kenison puts “words” to so many feelings I’ve had through the past few years…a great book…reminding us to see the “beauty” and grace within ourselves, in others, in relationships…throughout each and every precious day of our lives…

And this Annie Dillard quote…such a perfect reminder! …pausing, noticing and seeing the beauty throughout each and every day… honoring the exquisite beauty of  nature… pausing, noticing and appreciating… appreciating nature, our world, our lives…

    It’s a good focus to see the beauty and grace in everyone and in everything. Sometimes when Phil and I take a walk in nature, and we empty our minds we are able to tune in to the wonder-beauty of life. We watch the birds with their graceful flight, and the deep peace of our surroundings.

    • Isn’t it remarkable how pervasive beauty and grace are in life and our surroundings… and how lovely that you and Phil take walks and tune in to that beauty…a true gift to yourselves. And oh, the beauty of Oregon… so lovely. : )

  2. A small bird landed in our yard yesterday. Instead of flitting about and flying away, he walked around our yard giving me a chance to notice his long tail twitching, moving up and down. Such a sweet bird allowing me to watch him take a walk.
