The Short View

And then there is the short view. Or the immediate view. The simple-that-is-right-in-front-of-you view. This too is essential.

I love these daisies growing from rather sparse sandy area atop the Fairmont Hoo Doos in British Columbia. It’s the same spot as my post from The Long View, but just looking another direction.

I love what the simple calls forth. Beauty. Resilience. Neighboring.

I think I like the short view, the immediate view because my general orientation is that “in the anything is the everything.”

Here’s to the glimpse of wholeness found in the smallest of noticings. Grateful for the space of family, hiking, geographic belonging, and memory that has been stored in this Fairmont area for the last 28 years.
