today, i am thinking about noticing.
i am thinking about how, when your eyes are more softly focused, you do notice things that are important. in addition, you see those things in relation to the whole, instead of in isolation.
this feels important somehow.

i hadn't thought of it exactly like that.
i have just always known that my world seems less harsh. i see more beauty and less sordid reality. very myopic! but i like it.
a little like seeing through silk.
except when driving. i wear my glasses for others' safety from me! lol.

Lovely observations today, Elizabeth. I quite agree too. I notice when I use my eyes softly, when I soften my view, my heart softens too, and love flows more freely, connections become deeper...Here's to the soft view! ;o) Oh, and I was wondering where Atlas was too. Was he hiding low in those tall grasses? He's so soft now, I can't see him... LOL! Happy Spring, my friend ((HUGS))

Yes to the importance of noticing, and to seeing things in relation to the whole, instead of in isolation! I, too, feel that this is important.
Also, I looooooove today's photos. They're gorgeous. And their soft greens seem to be filled with luminosity and radiance.

Yes - lovely thoughts, lovely photos. It's so amazing what we can notice if we truly keep our eyes OPEN!
