Probably my favorite of all my favorites of your work, Jim. The introspection, the interaction with nature and an insular society, the photography, and, of course, the ducks 😉 All perfect.
Between the stinking messes that are our nation and most of the world and the mind-numbing long hours of work that occupy nearly all my waking hours and family issues that leave me filled with disappointment and confusion, I, too, forget to pay attention to the beauty around me. I am oblivious to what should and would give me a least a few moments of pleasure.
That is one of the reasons I created my publication, Weeds & Wildflowers — a gathering space for stories and photographs to remind me, and others, that there are still reasons to smile every day.
Thank you for today’s reminder.
