To See. . .

The greatest thing a human being ever does in this world is to see something. . . To see clearly is poetry, prophecy and religion, all in one.  -John Ruskin

A little after 7 o’clock this evening I left my office and rushed out to my car.  After spending two minutes trying to get my key to open a car that was identical to mine, but not mine, I found my car and climbed in.  (I had to confess that.  I’m incapable of not sharing every detail).

Anyway, I pulled out of my parking spot and stepped on the gas.  As I looked up at the evening sky my breath caught as I saw spectacular view above.  Without a thought I pulled over and took it in.  I saw it.  I mean, I really saw it. . . The beauty, the vastness, the art of the sky. 

In a moment I was reminded of just how small I really am. 

Wishing you moments of seeing today. . . really seeing.

    I was compelled to jump over from Kelle Hampton's blog just now as I read your description of losing your Mum. I am coming up to our 1st year without mine and your words resonated. Regardless of whether your comment is posted on ETST, thank you for taking the time to share!ReplyCancel

    I'm not sure that you will ever return to see this, but if you do I wanted to say my sincerest thank you for stopping by sharing your words. Without a doubt, you just made posting on Kelle's blog worth it.

    Also, I want to say I'm so sorry for your loss. So very sorry. I wish you all the best as you approach the one year mark and continue to wade your way through the waves of grief. I know there are no words, but know that you are not alone on the journey.ReplyCancel
