Looking Closer…

Looking Closer…
In Toronto right now, everywhere I look, I see the grayish- brown hues of early spring. The snow has melted, revealing the debris that winter hid. It truly is a muted, ugly sight. Yet when I look more closely, I see the buds of my neighbour’s crocus patch in his front garden. I notice that dogs linger a bit longer on their walks , seeming to enjoy all the new smells that the melted snowbanks have offered. Just a few days ago, two robins sat on the roof outside my bedroom, seeing only possibilities of nesting and creating new life.
In these moments I realize how the scale of my vision is off. By adjusting it down to these details,  I can only see beauty and opportunity.
