The Difference a Day Makes

The day AFTER I made this picture of our catalpa tree in full bloom with blossoms carpeting the grass beneath it, and its heady perfume in the air, a huge rain storm stripped the flowers from the tree.  

I can't help but think of my own tendency to put things off until later and how sad I would have been to miss this opportunity to really look at the tree and take pictures and create this piece.  This has spoken to my heart to be more aware of the preciousness of the moment and to act when I feel that inner nudge to do so;  to call a friend who is on my mind, to pay a compliment to a stranger in the grocery, or nurture myself when it is needed.

I hope this speaks to you too.  May we all be more aware of the moments that call to us and may we head them.

Blessings,

Julie
