If this trip is like my others, I become heightened aesthetically. I can hardly walk down the street without exclaiming at the beauty in the most ordinary of objects – a leaf, a crack in the sidewalk. I want to live in this place of heightened appreciation of the beauty that is everywhere.
This is my favorite thing about Japan, the effect it has on me.
Enjoy the beauty in your life today. XD

    Welcome home! What a wonderful way to be connected to home and begin away.

    Glad you’re home safe. Coming back after a long trip always makes you appreciate the beauty of what you had before you left, regardless of how much you enjoyed your trip.

    Welcome Back!!!

    Beautiful post and so very true. Most are too busy to notice the beauty right in front of them.

      Yes, and me too, but not any more. I’ve got on my beauty glasses.

    Such a simple piece of advice but it stirs something deep inside me. Thank you!

      Oh good Cherylann. I love that you said this. It helps me keep my own counsel better.

    Why do you think that happens? Is there a big contrast from where you live? Or is it because you’re relaxed and can soak it all up?

      You prompted me to write the post about a question of beauty two posts after this one. Thanks for your excellent questions and your comment. XD.
