What do you see?


I walk and hike a lot. I used to run but it’s no longer an option unless I want to endure bone-on-bone knee pain. I don’t. When I started walking more I started to look up more instead of always looking down at the ground. It changed my perspective. It creates calm. I remember to take deep breaths and be more mindful. More reflective and grateful. The wide open sky can do that.

Today my walk took me to the beach. This was my view. Beautiful isn’t it? The first thing I “saw” in the wide open sky were my parents. Their energy. Which made me smile. Then someone commented on the photo and told me when a tiny blue dot appears in a picture it means someone is paying a visit. Do you see it there in the foreground?

So when you are on your next walk, look up. You may be surprised by what that wide open sky reveals.

  1. What does the Little Prince say? “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” My mom gave me that book when I was young. I secretly love it best.

  2. Ok, so, to be honest, I looked at the picture as guided by the title of the piece, and I saw a cyclops in the clouds with the sun as the eye…I’m not sure what that says about me. Thanks for sharing your sweet moment.
