Turn to the sun
and the shadows
will fall behind you.-Ancient Maori Proverb
This is an ancient Maori Proverb, and I love it.
It was something that came to mind yesterday when I was with the kids down by the river, enjoying a truly blissful spring evening.... ahhhhh I am so loving the spring, bring it on I say, I am so ready for summer !!!.
I was watched the kids running, and playing and totally making the most of a moment ,and I marveled in how they do this so so very well.
As the sun set I tried to catch some of this great 'moment' with my camera.....
|Ahhhh sweet freedom|
|Treasures found in the grasses|
|Not sure what the joke was, but it was pretty funny|
|I suggested being butterfly's, they wanted to be planes|
|Being a butterfly|
|Nature is just the best catalyst for wonder and curiosity isn't it!!|
Meanwhile the boys had more serious business to attend to.... there were sticks and water to attend to ....
Looking back at these snapshots in time, I am reminded of how amazing our world and it's effect on us is, and it is totally worth the effort to get out in it.
As I am writing this Rob and Kurt are driving down to the high country down Tekapo for a 3-4 day hunting trip, it's a massive drive, but the country down there is something special, totally worth it !!
