Stop and Look

by Dinah Wulf

Writing this blog has changed my life in so many ways.  Even though there are very few people that even read it, I’m sure, I have truly taken ownership of it.

I get excited when I have time to sit down and write and everytime I am amazed by the other talented and creative  bloggers out there. (If your thinking about blogging… DO IT!) I look at the world a lot differently then I used to. In some sense, I appreciate the small moments and the little things around me even more than I already did.

Today I decided to go for a quick stroll with my daughter. As always I had my camera with me. I decided to take pictures of the flowers (and weeds) along the way. I could not believe how many pictures I took; almost two dozen in ten minutes… too many to post.

As you can see, there is inspiration all around, literally a few yards from my house and even some in my back yard. I proudly and can confidently admit, I do NOT have a green thumb. Some of these flowers, actually all of these flowers exist without my help.

I couldn’t believe that in the two years that I have lived in this humble abode that I have never once stopped to look at the botanical life around me and admire its beauty until now. I encourage you to stop and look and be inspired by your surroundings. You never know what you’ll walk right by and miss.


P.S. Happy Birthday, Daddy! Above all, you inspire me the most! I love you!
