Inspired by yesterday’s exercise of “looking up,” Roxy and I set out today to see what we could discover while “looking down.”
This was new even for me, since the only times I look down are when going down steep stairs or when looking at Roxy.
Funnily enough, I attribute my refusal to cast my peepers downward to nana.
She was always emphatic in reminding us that a woman should always hold her head high, and look down only when she ran the risk of breaking her neck otherwise.
Ironically, back in high school, following nana’s advice allowed my friend Artur to find a hundred dollar bill on the ground; one which sadly, I had walked over just two seconds before.
Thank you, Nana.
But I digress.
Roxy and I set out this afternoon on the mission to spy pretty things and not the usual garden variety of trash and other nasty objects you often see on the ground.
This is the first things we saw:
A few houses down the road we spotted this:
We also discovered this
Finally on our way home, we were delighted to spot a butterfly exactly the same as the one I wrote a blog post about not so long ago.
I feel that today taught us that looking down also provides an opportunity to discover wondrous things.
