Before my Sunday Morning Fresh Eyes I see...

So the lovely and so very talented beth had a beautiful post on her blog this morning.


She spoke about looking at your world with fresh eyes and witnessing the beauty right in front of you.


I looked at my desk top in the studio where I was frantically trying to get stuff ready to leave for a trip to Montreal and saw the beauty that was created as I was creating ...the mess is my mark, isn't it ?

I think it looks kind of beautiful too.



You know who when you are leaving for a trip and you rush around, thinking of every little detail that needs to be done before you leave, making sure that everyone you are leaving behind is organized and that you have packed all the things that the people you are headed to see have asked for, etc...and then before you know it, you are travelling, in a hurry to get there, and watching out for cops to see how fast you can drive, and watching the clock because you want to be sure to avoid the big city traffic jam and also make it to your host's house for the supper time hour you agreed on......




Well, thanks to beth and her morning blog post, I am heading out on a totally different trip, man !


I am going to do my damnedest to focus on the journey, to really see what is in front of me, and soak up its beauty.


I will get there when I get there,

but I promise to have a story to tell of all the gorgeous stuff I have seen along the way.


Live the journey that is your life today...

It's a totally different trip, man !

Headed to Montreal for a few days with Suzanne and Sam in the big city. Chica is coming with me. Will be back Thursday. Not sure if I will post on the trip but I am sure to visit my Blogland pals !

Big, Love, beautiful Ones !
