A Beautiful Day

We had such a beautiful day today. We walked a favorite walk amongst the ferns and moss in the winter woods.

Where we had a picnic, and sat in the soft, warm light, and ate chickpea sandwiches, as a duck stood there and watched us, eying our bread and crusts...

What a beggar!

...before returning back to swim the stream...

We walked on then...and saw a butterfly flutter by...Mr. Livings reached out his hand and the butterfly touched it...then flew close...then closer still...and landed on Mr. Livings' head...resting a moment before flying away...

...and then returning...to rest again upon Mr. Livings' head. He stood so still. I stood so still and watched...breathless and in wonder - a witness and a part of this beautiful and magical moment of connection.

It was amazing...


After a time, I watched the butterfly then fly away...

Then we walked on...

So much beauty we saw upon our walk...and so much beauty we heard too...I can never get enough of the sound of rushing waters...

There is just one word for what they bring...for what they ever bring...


Peace.


It was a beautiful, beautiful day.
