Noticing

It started with a dinosaur on wheels attached to a tree.

Being a typical human who needs answers, I surmised that the Dino car was a lost toy and someone did a good deed.
But then I saw this gift!
Now I’m looking in the brush as I walk along the greenway.
Further off the path I noticed red in the brush. This cardinal made me so happy!
Delight is in the noticing.
Gifts are everywhere in plain sight.
Abundance is meant to be shared.
I hope the kind soul who hid these treasures along the greenway receives even more pleasure and joy from his/her surprises than I did. Thank you kind stranger. You brightened a gloomy day in a Christmas season without family, parties, going into stores, and other typical activities.

Blessings to you and yours no matter your Holiday tradition. Merry Christmas to all.

    Recently, I was far off the highways, making my way through a stand of Ashe juniper, when I came across a tree draped with silver tinsel, red shiny balls, and a red star on top. It’s a poor year that I don’t find one of these anonymously decorated trees. Quite famously, someone shows up to decorate a series of trees along I-10 outside San Antonio every year. I love them. Their very awkwardness and sudden appearance makes them more dear to me than the fanciest tree. I love this one — I’m so glad you found it and shared it!
