I would like you all to pretend for a minute you are a child again exploring the earth for the first time.

What do you see that is so beautiful and that brings you joy by touching it, smelling or just seeing it.

I will start:

A sunset...... of course you knew I would have to say that...

What a beautiful question dear catchasunset...

many come to mind...a rainbow, a sunset, flower petals, autumn leaves, puffy clouds and azure blue skies, rain drops in a puddle, frost....I am sure there are others that will come to mind...

it made me think of this quote...
Among the mind's powers is one that comes of itself to many children and artists. It need not be lost, to the end of his days, by anyone who has ever had it. This is the power of taking delight in a thing, or rather anything, not as a means to some other end, but just because it is what it is. A child in the full health of his mind will put his hand flat on the summer lawn, feel it, and give a little shiver of private glee at the elastic firmness of the globe

Looks like everyone is in the coffee shop.

Thanks ladybird for sharing your thoughts.

I am going to go have a cup of coffee now. Want to join me there?

When I was little I loved being alone sitting in the farthest corner of our yard on an old electrical spool outside the chicken pen... singing my made up songs to them in the sunshine.



Thanks Sunset for the great post... think I will stay right here in my own corner for a while... songless... not feeling like coffee just now. Certainly needed some sunshine though... especially from a beautiful Sunset!

love Lion~*

Hi catchasunset :-)
First of all I hope Lion gets all the sunshine she needs....
I am noticing the way people smile ... and how some show real serenity........
I am also noticing the joyous energy in a little fluffy kitten..
And I really noticed a beautiful sunset the other day not by looking at it but because it filled our sitting room with pink light
Cheers

Haven't seen you in a long time (((Lifeboat))))) So nice to hear from you! :D: <---- sincere smile~* I actually haven't seen much sunshine this Fall... it has been very dark and dull for days as if it is sundown at any hour of the day. I bought new * daylight* lightbulbs for winter to counter the dreary sky. It snowed 5 inches 2 weeks ago and melted. When it stays for 5 months... it brightens everything again in a white blanket!

Memories of childhood and snow... waking up and having the house literally buried!!!... only 6 inches of the front window that you see out ... and that was 14 ft off the ground! :?
Us kids would crawl up the house roof and slide off into the huge mounds of snow that slid off the tin roof. We also used to build snow men on the flat roof of the old garage... no one had to shovel it then! I loved playing in the snow... until my siblings abandoned me when my boots stuck immovably into the snow when I shot off the back roof. They neglected to tell mom... who didn't notice me missing till I was an icicle from head to toes. ... NO... I didn't go off the roof again with them. ???
