Beautiful Moments: Enchanted Forest Edition
There is an enchanting beauty found along the simplest paths of life. Mostly this is a metaphor, but sometimes, if you are open enough, it is literal, too.
Last Sunday on an early-morning walk so cold that our fingertips were icy-cold bits of numbness, I had to dance and skip alongside Mel to keep from becoming too chilled. Despite the cold, however, we walked for hours, and along the path we encountered some wondrous little surprises that enchanted us both.
These photos remind me of Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing. A practice of connecting with trees to bring greater health and connection to the earth.
I want to thank the people who long ago created this day for us. No one can ever know what beautiful little treasures we leave along the path for others, but a little creativity goes a long way I think.
Where will you find a little magic in your moments this weekend?
