Beauty at Unexpected Moments and Places

Image from the December 2010 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine

You may have noticed Élan's new subtitle:  Stumbling upon beauty every day .  It is my most fervent wish to live more fully in the moment and two ways I have discovered to help me do that are: to notice your breath (yoga class) and to notice and acknowledge beauty wherever/whenever you can (Simple Abundance). 

Today:
  • The Autumn sunlight on the yellow leaves of the apple tree in the back yard;
  • The perfect fit of V's body against mine when we have our Saturday morning snuggle;
  • The image (above) that I stumbled upon when I opened Oprah's Spirit Newsletter;
  • The color and texture of the miscellaneous yarns in my window seat, waiting to be knit up.

May beauty surprise and delight you today.

Bonne journée,

Stella

Beauty does indeed help us appreciate each and every day! It is amazing that we become blind to what is around us without conscious thought. Yoga breath helps, doesn't it! Thanks for giving us the reminder. So glad to have you back again!
