Finding Free Beauty Right Outside Your Door

Finding Free Beauty Right Outside Your Door

Every year butternut leaves fall at the end of June. It reminds me of a favorite passage from Ted Kooser’s book, Local Wonders: “Gold in the grass, gold falling from above, even little flurries of gold that lift from the grass and rise back into the air as if they weighed nothing, and, in fact, nothing they weigh. And all for free.” Enjoy your weekend and all the free joy and beauty right at your feet.

Finding Beauty

Lately some things I see strike me as profoundly beautiful. This last weekend we criss-crossed the state and I saw so many beautiful scenes: rolling corn fields in emerald green, little girls in sequined dance costumes, a Venetian glass sculpture of Pegas, and this…the Travelers insurance umbrella at dusk. What strikes YOU as profoundly beautiful?
