More than...



"Like the sun through the trees you came to love me."
{Forever Autumn, Moody Blues}


Sometimes,
when you take a five minute break

Sometimes,
when you walk towards the water to grab a quick picture of 
the sunlight shining through pretty yellow leaves

Sometimes,
in the middle of a ho-hum, ordinary day...

...a swan swims right into your shot

Sometimes,
when you ask for a tiny bit of refreshment

Sometimes,
when you imagine a peaceful five minutes with the sun on your face

Sometimes,
when you least expect it...

...you receive immeasurably more than you ask or imagine
