Experience Your Day

This morning, after dropping off our son at the bus stop, I laid down on the driveway and experienced in awe what was happening around me.

A storm rolling in.  Swirling masses of leaves finding their way back to earth.  Trees dancing to a hushed windsong.

And I?

I was here to experience it.

Yes there were things to be done.  The to-do's still waited.  This moment, however, would not.

I chose to allow myself to get drunk 
on the intoxicating fragrance of the impermanence.

It is how life is lived.


  1. So very beautiful, Lisa. Those moments are what it is all about, my Friend. Live that life, Baby !

  2. Oh, that sounds so awesome!!! I love to stop and feel!

  3. Thank you for reminding us that it doesn't take much to really appreciate life:) Glad you had that beautiful moment!

  4. Oh what joy!! Well done for remembering to stop and acknowledge it all amidst all of life's busy-ness. What a way to energise at the start of the day too!

  5. How wonderful that you took just one moment out of your day to stop and feel. When I took the doggy out this afternoon - I stopped to look at the layers upon layers of colorful leaves that have laid themselves so colorfully on the ground. I love the dreamy look upon your face - so peaceful and introspective. Theresa

  6. Taking time to pause almost feels like a hug. :)

  7. I must've read and re-read this 5 times. Beautiful.
