When I grow up I want to be an expert in the small things.
A few little things I found the last two days while walking the dog:
Golden Raspberries. These were from a neighbor. I didn’t even know golden raspberries existed. I’m on a mission to plant my own for next year. How amazing to even have the opportunity to plant something that grows into a fruit…think of everything that has to align for that to even happen.
Peeling paint on a mailbox. I love how some areas have faded from red to yellowish-orange. It’s perfectly aged. I should leave a note in the person’s mailbox letting them know how much I appreciate it, just so they won’t consider re-painting it one day.
A sunset on Hospital Hill. I thought it looked like the clouds were doing the backstroke. Or maybe aliens trying to break through the atmosphere. Either way: awesome and worthy of a photo.
You can start today. We can become experts together. The great part is that we don’t need money for classes or a degree. It’s free for all. A free-for-all. And if you need a diploma on your wall I’m sure I can make something up for you.
Anne Shirley can be helpful too. She always nails it:
Dear old world, you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.
