And yet. There are those moments. Those precious moments tucked into everyday life that remind one all is not lost. The sumptuous rock daphne coming into bloom. Fragrant lilac trees scenting the town. The cluck of a chicken as she proudly lays an egg. Sweet heavy air ripe with ozone; the after effects of a thunder storm. White cowboy boots and hula hoops. Thrift store finds. Walks in the woods with friends and a pack of dogs.
It seems, if one looks carefully and with an open heart, beauty abounds. It's all about perspective.
