Stop and appreciate

Sometimes we hurry from web page to web page, from place to place, in a controlled environment.

It is important to stop and appreciate the real world, the world we live in every day. That is why I try to spend some time outside every day – hot or cold, wet or dry, work or home. I usually (though not always) succeed.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.  -John Ruskin, author, art critic, and social reformer (1819-1900)

Captured

I stopped this morning to take a few photos. This one best captured the feel of the morn – very hot (26C), very humid, very still. A day and a landscape waiting for relief, for release, from the unusually long hot spell we have endured for almost a week.
