“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
As I write, there is a television reality show somewhere in Australia that currently in production. This show is recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for an entire month. There are close to 400 employees working behind the scenes. Maybe even more! My colleagues and myself are all working flat out. We are all exhausted. Life is consuming right now…..
It is only when you stop and take the time to slow life right down that you realise we are working in a beautiful rainforest that lives and breathes. An ecosystem so divine and so fragile. A place where life lives, irrespective of us sharing this environment or not. It is such an amazing world. Most would have not even notice a tiny little bird’s nest hidden in the thick of this large rainforest….
These photos were taken today by my beautiful girlfriend, Sammi. It is THE most beautiful bird’s nest I have ever seen. Thank you soooo much for sharing Sammi.
This IS nature. We all NEED nature. It’s moments like this that make us feel alive.
