Today missing yesterday?
Does winter always make us miss summer? Or is just after a week of snow followed by rain and blasts of wind that I really miss summer? I thought of this picture today. This was taken in the backyard of our old house--old meaning we actually sold it last July. Lucky, huh? Yes, actually it was--but it will be a long long time before I don't miss my little prayer garden in the backyard. And the birds, the white dogwood tree, the Japanese maples, and much more. I loved spending the mornings in a chair, with a cup of coffee, a book and my journal--all under a small umbrella in the prayer garden. But, luckily I took the time to be there when I was there, and now I have wonderful memories I can call to mind. I can sit there, or wander around the yard...in my mind. All this to say that this is why I chose the words: pay attention to the moment for this photo.
