can you see it?

this week has, at times, blindsided me. there has been bad alongside the good. through it all there has been a sense of contentment. a contentment to be where i am right now. i may not see through the situation i find myself in but i am happy, happy within myself. 

as i have gone about life this week i have again noticed the trees. this tree i shared with you a couple of weeks ago has turned from this: 

to this:

this tree at the bottom of my neighbours garden has turned from this: 

to this:

as i looked at the photos this morning i was looking at the colour changes, the leafs dropping, proof that the season is indeed waning and winter is drawing in. but what i saw was something i missed. perhaps you saw it? (you might need to click to make the photos bigger) with fresh eyes i realised i caught a bird in flight in the third photo. i can honestly say when i took it i didn't see it. i didn't see it when i uploaded it from my camera to the computer. i didn't see it until i was comparing which shots to include here and even then i was still focusing on the tree. it made me think you can focus so much on one thing, something you think is so important to your story that you forget to see what is right there in front of you. it might be smaller than you. it might be quicker than you. it might seem less vibrant to you but it's there, waiting. waiting for you to see it. sometimes we need to look harder, other times it jumps up and down and waves its arms under our noses to get our attention. on more than one occasion this week things have happened that i have not expected. life is a journey with twists and turns, the interactions are what make it. look for them, you may not always understand them but good or bad life is richer for them.
