I was contemplating the old expression “take time to smell the roses” shortly before I took this picture. Plenty of bad things are happening in the world and there is a lot of negative “noise” around us. It can be discouraging, and downright depressing.
However, if one really seeks out the beautiful, the spiritual if you will, much can be found to brighten our day. And often with no (or very little) cost other than some time. And, yes, I did smell the roses; they had a wonderful fragrance.
What are some of the ways that you “smell the roses?”
