What The Neighbors Think

The neighbors probably think I’m a strange sort of hippie.

I’m usually taking pictures of some element of nature or looking at a patch of sunlight they can’t understand; at least that’s the look they give me, before passing on a sort of smile. Truthfully, I’m quite content with that perception of me.

I went for a walk one evening, just to smell the fresh air and soak in the last bits of summer before the change of seasons was in full swing.

I mused for a moment at the way it sat decaying in the flattened grasses landscape maintenance crews left behind.

And I thought to myself, there must be a heart like that in everything. Something small, maybe, but something really good.

We just have to ignore the things our neighbors might think and pause a moment to properly see it.
