Beauty and stillness all around

I was going to whine about how busy the past month has been (because it has felt like the writer’s equivalent of a puppy mill). But then I stumbled across this photo I shot in May and was reminded that even when we’re quite literally running from one thing to the next, there’s still beauty and stillness all around us.

Have you been running from one thing to the next as well? Why not pause for a minute or two of box breathing. And just for good measure, here are a couple more reminders to take a moment for yourself today and stop to smell the flowers.
