Today in Simple Abundance, Sarah reminds us to look at the blue sky, hear the grass growing beneath our feet and inhale the scent of spring. She quotes naturalist Diane Ackerman, who says “The senses don’t just make sense of life in bold or subtle acts of clarity, they tear reality apart into vibrant morsels and reassemble them into a meaningful pattern.”
I love the phrase “vibrant morsels.” Don’t you think these plants might be considered vibrant morsels, assembled to the eye and mind in a meaningful pattern? They show up each spring in the shady area, with little light to help them grow. And no matter, they stand out as a very bright sign that spring is here and all is happening just as it should.
