Photo-a-day 9: Noticing nature

frost tipped ivy

I was walking the dog this morning.

On familiar streets.

The routine was in full swing, until…

I was lucky enough to note, for me, a new phenomenon.

These frosted ivy leaves almost look Photoshopped. Nope, it’s the real thing.

And I thought…what else–during these days of retirement–have I missed when I fall into routines?

I Googled ‘noticing nature’ and came upon this article–an exercise, really–entitled none other than Noticing Nature from an interesting site called Greater Good in Action: Science-based Practices for a Meaningful Life.

Uncanny…in sharing this photo with you fellow retirees, I had unwittingly approximated the first two of the exercise’s four steps.

Give this site a try.
