A warm welcome if you have just come over to my blog from Miss Minimalist!
You know it is said the silences are as important as the sounds in music, and the negative spaces as vital as the positive ones in a painting? I think the spaces in between the activities of day to day life are just as important, and I realise that many of my blogposts are about these moments in between.
In between chores, work, apppointments and the general busyness of life, I have learned to savour the little gaps and pauses. Sometimes I am consciously looking for subjects for the blog, for photos to delight my (and hopefully your) eye, for little spots of calm in a somtimes hectic schedule, and because I now write about them I notice them more, or more importantly for a simpler life, I take the time to create them.
Some are only seconds long, but I treasure them :- I stick my nose out of the back door first thing and smell the weather, look out of the glass front door every single time I pass it, take my coffee outside whenever I can, sit on the porch to look at the garden in the late afternoon light, pick a posy for the bedside tables, hide for a wee while in the greenhouse with a book....
What treasured moments in between do you have in your day (and can you build in more?)
