A Contemplative Life = A World of Contrasts – Walking Outdoors in Spring

At this time, when people are anxious about the pandemic, with millions of lives completely upended, I am looking for the calm in the turmoil. To keep a balanced perspective I took a needed walk to Fair Oaks Park. Cooped up at home is not healthy.

Here’s a few photos from Minneapolis. Spring slowly does it’s thing here.

People are out keeping their distance, Here’s what I saw: people walking their dogs, a couple running, guy with a medical mask freewheeling in a wheelchair, a woman sitting in the sun with her dog and a guy reading his phone. Plus a goofy Squirrel acting like a bushy tail free spirit. The Minneapolis Art Institute all dressed up, but with visitors.

Here are some photos from my friends walk in South Carolina.

In South Carolina it’s in the low 80 degrees F! A world of contrasts, appear together in these images. The earth awakens slowly in the Northland. While the warm southern days seen here display an abundance of sunshine and creatures!  Seen were: Alligator on the lawn, Storks on the golf green and fishing in the water, turtles sunning, storks high up in the trees.

These scenes remind me where to find balance in nature no matter where we live. There’s a moment of beauty in your life.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Take time to find your balance.

Have a peaceful day wherever you find yourself in the world.
