Daily Post: Audience of One
Picture the one person in the world you really wish were reading your blog. Write her or him a letter.
My passion is nature which is all over the world, so in essence, the one person in the world I would really wish were reading my blog is ‘the world’.
Maybe my letter would go something like this:
I’m writing this in the hope that when you wake up in the mornings you open up your curtains and take a look outside for a few minutes before your busy day begins. Notice that each day is different but also the same. Beautiful!
Hold that view for a while. Etch it in your mind and take in what you’re seeing. Are you seeing everything there is to see? Do you see the trees swaying in the breeze, the sun shinning or maybe today it’s being a bit bashful hiding behind some clouds? Do you hear the birds singing, the sound of traffic or the chit chat of passers by? Take it all in.
As you sit in traffic lights, don’t text! Look around you. What do you see? Parks, beaches, rivers or buildings that have seen decades come and go? How are they looking? Tired or fresh?
Don’t be in too much of a rush or you’ll miss so many things. Things that will make your day better for having taken the time to experience it. You’ll notice that they’ll make you feel calmer, time might seem to go slower. Experience the moment in wonder.
Just in parting, I’d like to give you a simple gift of nature. A rose. Just for you.
Have a great day and take care.
