I wasn’t expecting the delicate Camellia bud when I stepped out in the late afternoon light.
Surely it’s still winter. What are you doing here?
And then there’s the increased bird chatter across the valley.
Isn’t that a bit loud – and beautiful – for this time of year?
Yet if we are open to it, there is life everywhere.
Even in surprising places and times.
Can you see it?
Pause and be astonished – because you won’t notice if you’re hurrying by.
