I live in a small Cape a block from the City of Buffalo line and I love my neighborhood. Even though it is not an exotic location or a wonder of the world, I have fun living here and I am awestruck on a regular basis by beauty. I guess that is one reason I garden.
The other night, I caught some orange glow out my window and ran to the corner and carefully stood in the street. The view was awesome and I kept snapping until the glow died back. The orange just draped the clouds with colors. One woman was walking towards me with a dog and I said, "Turn around and look". She did and said, "Meh" and kept walking. The wonder of nature and colors motivates me all the time. That is one reason why I love fabric and paint and make things with them. Try some wonder on for size soon.
