Spider Web at Sunrise in Chiapas, Mexico

Spider Web at Sunrise in Chiapas, Mexico

Now that I “have the time” and fewer material distractions I try to seek joy in simple things. Things that I might have missed before because I didn’t have the undistracted presence to notice. A simple act of kindness, a warm smile or the elegant beauties of small things in nature were all things that I often overlooked because I didn’t possess the mindfulness to notice. Being mindful requires hard effort and concentration but I am working on it. Sometimes that work is rewarded with a memory such as this one – a simple spider’s web covered with dew tucked deep in a foggy valley in remote Chiapas. How many things did I miss before because I allowed seemingly urgent or persistent things to distract me from what was important? How many things do I still miss because I didn’t start practicing earlier?
