"They love to discover, these two."
It is a bit of a catch-phrase between Remi and I. Because it is oh-so true. Discovery...the power of it, the adventure...has been a long link in our relationship. As a perpetual revelation of the new, it can be addictive. We roamed the world wide to sip its brew but now find our panoramas more confined.
I spend a lot of time in our little village. It is a Provence that is off the map and that too holds a bit of a thrill. But the challenge has been to keep seeing, to keep discovering and not fall prey to its lullaby, no matter how charming it may be.
I want to wrap the beauty of the world around me so tightly that it courses through my veins. And it is right there, everywhere, this ultimate luxury, our great gift.
Lately, the morning dew or la rosée on the grass has been wicking at my ankles as I walk the dogs. And so I open my eyes a little wider, let my heart get a bit more quiet and relish in the splendor of having diamonds for breakfast.
Today's post is my contribution to the monthly international blog party, "By Invitation Only" on the theme of "Life's Luxuries." To read all of the other takes on this theme, please hop over here.
PS. Imagine my surprise this morning when I saw that the lawn where these photos had been taken...had been mowed! I try not to be too moralistic around here but Life was certainly saying:
"Make the most of everything while you can..."
