yesterday we, I slowed down. on purpose.
there was new life bursting everywhere we looked. the spring season is starting to make itself apparent and there were extra beautiful things that were catching our attention:
mr. sparrow making a new summer nest for mrs. sparrow and babes with fresh weeds and things;
a bird singing this beautiful song, (we think it's a blue jay but we're not sure);
fresh new flowers and buds sprouting through the dead dried leaves and twigs; finally some life and colour back in our yards:
and of course, the usual neighbourhood cat chase of our beloved Bill, Toby, and Charlie:
i was reminded to stop rushing us home; that there is always something to discover and uncover with every step we take. but most importantly, i was reminded that i just need to take the time to notice.

'the possibilities are everwhere, facing my fears one step at a time'
enjoy your day, and endeavour to slow down. you'll be surprised at the things you'll discover.
