The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
~ Marcel Proust
Find your boots, your mitts, your hat and scarf. Never mind how cold it is. Get out there.
Don’t wait for warmer weather, bluer skies or windless days. Don’t wait for an occasion when you might have more time or more enthusiasm. Get out there now.
So much is waiting for you to discover… wonders made for your eyes only.
Give up your expectations and let yourself be surprised by what nature has to offer today that it didn’t yesterday… a bluer sky or fluffier cloud layers… sparkling snow or frozen mud puddles… delicate ripples or white caps on the water. Just get out there and see for yourself.
No need to commit to more than ten minutes. But chances are, you’ll get hooked and stay out for longer than you’d expect.
Nature puts on a new show every day. Don’t miss it!
We must not be slaves either of time or health; we cannot dispose of either as we will! If we thought of acting only when all the conditions were favorable, we would pass our lives doing nothing; or at least we would get out of life very little of what it can give us.
Go ahead! That is a phrase I like so much. Even if everything is far from perfect, we must learn to say it. And things will go ahead, since joy does not come from without or from circumstances. Its principal source is within us.
~ A Carthusian
