I would like to say I was reflectively, meandering around with my 35mm Canon seeking and receiving nature’s gifts. Something that has always renewed and restored my spirit at a deep, core level.
But, I wasn’t. I was rushing by, my mind racing ahead of me, already on the next task at hand. It was more of a yearning tug than a low lying blur of magenta that made me stop. I hesitated, debating. Did I have time to look closer? The tug was beseeching, compelling me to turn around and go back. I knelt down and was immediately taken in. This infusing feeling of connection I experience in nature, I’ve missed it so.

Entering into this season of Lent, I want to stop, turn around and go back.
