The gathering of flowers and leaves… the noticing… the arranging. There is a quiet and a sweet calm that come with honoring such fleeting beauty. This last day before school begins is the perfect time to cultivate a slow and peaceful pace to our day. Right now, while the colors are vibrant everywhere, I urge your take a moment and enjoy them. Consider celebrating all the leaves and flowers with some artful placement. It's a wonderful meditation. Capture it with a picture for the coming days when white is the most common color to be seen.
