Lessons from the Hummingbird

Published August 15, 2014 by Lunapo

The hummingbird has taught me to stop, slow down, and take in the world around me.

Last week, Witchlette and I went to a playground in a local park. At 11:30, Witchlette started calling for “nom noms” and we were on our way. I didn’t want to mess up her schedule too much, so I was in a rather quick pace to get her home.

A red mushroom caught my eye so I stopped to look at it. Being a shutterbug with a camera built into my handheld idiot box, I snapped a few shots. Then I saw a millipede/centipede close by. I snapped a few shots of that too.

Witchlette was quiet content playing with a few leaves while I got my photog on.

I thanked the Universe for the gift of this sight.
