Pleasures of the Day

I went for a walk tonight. I tried to observe and soak in everything around me.

There was a little patch of woods 1/2 mile from my home that enchanted me. Fireflies were blinking off and on in the depth of the branches. I could imagine fairies playing in the flowers that grew wild within the forested blanket of that little wood.

I walked into the field next to the woods. I saw Crow tracks left in the mud, the tracks had dried and looked almost fossil like. It made my heart leap. It may sound silly but I live for little moments like these.

It was my first walk in a long while, and I struggled to complete it. But I'm walking again tomorrow, and I might just see those fairies after all.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
