Chasing Beauty

Winter has finally gone away.

And in it's place, suddenly, jaw-dropping smacked-in-the-face gorgeous.


And, after the longing, the aaah of spring soothing our weariness; the warmth, the beauty, the falling into relaxation.  Even celebrating it.

Even more so because it took so long - this year.

And so now shedding layers.  Sidewalk cafes full. Vibrant color. Trees colored in.
Lush and full and a spectacle.

The same every year.  Creation fulfilling.

But somehow always amazed; overcome and thankful. 
The deepest longing of the human heart touched by all this display. To celebrate the good.  To stay awake to this wild and beautiful life. 

Are not books written, movies made; the loss of something, the struggle.  How it becomes redemptive. Life changing.  A new awareness for each and every moment.  What is.  Embracing the now.  A decision to live fully.  Because suddenly life is spectacular even in the everyday, the ordinary, the difficult.  Much to celebrate.  Only to slow down to see.

To capture the moment like a lens of a camera.

A lesson for all.   

The best way to live; fully engaged appreciating and seeing.
Keenly aware of the beauty. Chasing it.

The presence of the Creator stamped on each day.
