Simple, Beautiful Life

I was greeted this morning by a beautiful Golden Swallowtail Butterfly in my yard.

I have not seen one of them there before and it flew from plant to plant, like a bird soaring on thermals, gliding more than fluttering like butterflies normally do.

Then tonight, I was bid goodnight by a beautiful post full moon, surrounded by drifting wispy clouds, taking the moon from light to dark, glowing to shadowed.

My day in between was a beautiful and ordinary muddle of connections, energy, unreal coincidences and the tedium of life and human beings.

Everywhere I look, I see an opportunity for beautiful art, in the form of photos, drawings, paintings

or words.

Then even when the world around me seems to be in a frenzy of viral worry, life's just not so bad when I am creating.
