This was not the funny thing that I noticed though. I took the time and I physically stopped and absorbed all of what Mother Nature was displaying today, while other people, did not see a thing. One older couple were out for a walk, a walk, and they still didn’t see the predator high up in the sky. They were a very cute couple, although I hope that when I am that old my senses will be strong and I will notice things that are around me.
Then there were the teenagers at the bus stop. I actually don’t think they even realized that it was sunny out today, or that they were at a bus stop. They couldn’t be bothered to look up from their cell phones to notice anything. In the race of natural selection, I think that teenagers would probably all die. They are all so stuck in their own little bubbles, a bear could probably attack them and their response would be that it was a surprise attack. Oh, they may be stronger and more physically fit, but when it comes to life outside their bubbles, they are lost. Just for a moment, that is all that it would have taken from them, a moment, to look, to see, to actually enjoy the splendour of this world, but they were too focused on texting.
My point is just this one: People need to look up and see all that is wonderful around them. Take time to see things that are right in front of you. Guess what? I am not a rich woman, but I am one who relishes in the riches of this world. In less than thirty seconds, I saw what most chose to ignore. I actually enjoyed watching that eagle. So much power and grace compacted into one `little’ bird. We receive so few opportunities to enjoy things like this. Just seconds, that’s it.
Happy Does It!
