Beauty is the sap of my life.
It is as close to a physical manifestation of love as anything I can know.
I find it everywhere.
It fills my lungs and pushes the blood into my heart.
It makes me gasp with dandelion's breath, it makes me cry loping crocodile tears.
Beauty lifts me out of this particular time to a larger one...
...and yet freezes the second hand on my life's tick-tock watch.
How different we all are in this wide world and yet we all have been kissed...
...by its grace.
Pink kisses maybe. Brushed lightly across our forehead.
The touch of creativity's spark...
Straight into the best of who we ever are.
Today's post was for By Invitation Only, an international meeting of bloggers all singing a different tune of the same song. February's theme is "inspiration."
