So much of modern life is about rushing towards something – higher paying jobs, a bigger home, more enlightened children, thinner bodies. …you could describe it as onwards and upwards.
Sometimes though it’s nice to just sit and be. Feel the soil beneath your feet, the air on your face and if you are lucky the sun on your back. It can provide a bit of perspective about just how important those future goals are and perhaps how far along you already are. An opportunity to smile and recognise how lucky you are, how much you have, how beautiful life is.
