See shapes in clouds?
Delight in those shapes?
So do I!
I like watching, or maybe a nicer word for that would be observing. Observing tends to bring lots of little rewards.
When I took the two photos in this post, last summer, the heart shape I saw in the trees was a great big reward for looking around me.
Sometimes we go for walks on the beach, and there are days when I see heart shaped pebbles everywhere, sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming, because I want to pick up ALL the heart shaped pebbles, and add them to my 'heart-shaped-pebble-collection'.
I love people-watching too, but that fits into my interior category of noisy and busy observing (folks being a noisy and busy lot most of the time).
Quiet, nature based observation is my favourite kind of watching. Watching the four fattened pigeons on the bird table frenziedly feeding away, whilst the littler birds hop around worriedly, trying to get their share. Watching the sky, busy with clouds floating by and birds circling. Watching a landscape. Watching as my Hyacinth bulbs squeeze their way out of the soil more and more each day. Watching the doggies just being themselves.
Observing can be very rewarding don't you think?
Having said that, I'm just about to go out for a bit of healthy socialising at my Wednesday night knitting group. This is my 'putting out' time, where I make an effort to go against my character type, and have a good natter. Join the flock, so to speak, rather than my usual sitting on the edges looking in type of thing.
So cheerio then. Love Vanessa xxx
