One of the websites that I read daily, Chookooloonks, provides me with a steady stream of inspiration. The woman behind the website, Karen Walrond, uses her writing and photography skills to express her wondefully positive ideas and musings. A while ago, she started what she calls Love Thursday, encouraging other bloggers to write about Love on Thursdays and to link their stories in the comments section of her website. I think that's a fabulous idea and I look forward to Thursdays with that focus in mind, to what I'll discover in the name of love.
Today is about the love I feel on my morning walks. My heart explodes with hope and my mind focuses on promise in the mornings. I love to discover the day's beginnings during my morning walk. Every morning is different, different light, different sounds, different moisture.
I love the way the sun rays beautify a spot of overgrowth and weeds.
I love to discover a vase in a window, a potted plant on a patio. I love a red door.
I love to walk along side the repeating curves of an iron fence.
I love discovering new life blooming around me...
... and old life still vibrant with color
... and the pop of a green rose bush against the dull brown of a fence.
I love the texture of a bare and wild Wysteria vine.
There's so much to discover each morning. I love beginning my day with the journey of finding such beauty.
