I Live In A World Of Wonder

We've lived in our condo building since January 2020. That's a long time, but there's still things that surprise me.

 This morning I was carrying some boxes from the second floor to my car in the basement. Coming down the flight of stairs from the second floor I caught a glimpse of this fascinating shadow:

 The sun was coming through the window on the first floor landing on the east side of the building, and it's angle showcased the branches of the nearly-naked tree just outside the window. If I hadn't been looking for it I would have completely missed the beauty.

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.” A Tree Grows in Brooklyn


  1. It looks like there are beehives on the tree.

  2. Art of light and shadows! A pretty one. You have eyes to find beauty.

  3. I'm impressed both by the shadow and by the quotation.

    1. The novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is one of my favorites

  4. Ithink we all need to slow down and observe more. Isn't it amazing what those shadows spilled?

  5. How lovely to stop and be able to savor a sample of nature's beauty.

  6. I hope you're surprised by new and beautiful sights frequently.

  7. I love the way the sun plays across the walls in our house. Every room in the house gets sun at some time during the day so there is always something going on with shadows. You still have many months to discover what the sun does in your new place.
