Have you ever looked closely at the purple petals of an Iris in the golden afternoon sun? Have you seen how luminescent they are, glowing from a source deep within? Have you watched the way they fold themselves over gently, inviting you to pause for a moment and embrace a sense of wonder? Have you noticed the way everything lights up under your deep and loving gaze? Have you taken a breath this day and rediscovered the luminous world waiting for you to just pay attention?

I honestly had never looked that closely. Truly lovely.
I wouldn’t have taken the time, unless for you. Thanks for that gift, Christine.
