As we age, we appreciate the beauty of a walk up the road.
Now, however, we look for shady spots to rest awhile, out of the sun. There by the side, sweet grass grows, which in our youth, we never noticed in our hurry to jog.
Our experience tells us that soon, the grass will change from its verdant radiance to a dull brown.
This awareness makes us sensitive and alert to the beauty of green now.
We seek out a thrill just to make us feel young again. Somewhere in that green is a delicious smell.
We give ourselves permission to take a break from our upward trek to lie down and cushion ourselves in joy.
At last, a comfortable spinal stretch where we are in the present moment, enjoying all of the experiences our senses offer.
On this holiday weekend, may you all enjoy a few moments like this one.
