Take A Break and a Look Around

Fall leaf

β€œIt is easy in this pompous age to scan the big things of the world and forget to see the small miracles of life around us; the morning light, the flowers, those intimate details of the world that combine to make it beautiful.”

– Ansel Adams


  1. Enjoying every part of nature is truly a blessing especially if you do it for a living. The peace and relaxation it gives us, taking us away from the busy world. πŸ™‚

    Beautiful Ansel Adams quote. So many of us know him for his photography. Thank you for reminding us to cherish his words, as well.

  3. Donna says:

    Lovely quote from Ansel Adams. I agree with Ron that the older I get the more I appreciate the little things in life.
    Now I stop to “smell the roses”.

    “Take a break and look around”
    Excellent advice! Take a look each day at some of the miracles of nature and also do not forget to laugh each and every day, even if it is by yourself or at yourself – ENJOY!

  5. Ron Kemler says:

    I found that the older I got the more the details around me were important to having a good life. When your young you overlook the beauty of nature and focus yourself on what I now call the non-essential stuff in life. Benjamin Franklin once said that “He that is rich need not live sparingly, and he that can live sparingly need not be rich”.

    I was recently hiking, the first trilliums of the year were out, and no one else on the trail seemed to notice them. Such a shame!
