Just my luck, on the second sunny summer day in Holland of this year, I get sick. So this weekend I couldn’t go to the beach, or sit myself down on a sidewalk terrace in the old center. No, I was forced to stay in and around the house. Luckily for me, I live across a park, so I went for a stroll to get some fresh air, catch some sun, and get a little exercise, and I took my camera with me. And yet another life lesson, because if you really pay close attention to what is around you, you discover the most beautiful things. Small creatures, and little things, sometimes just 3 centimeters, that can make you happy. I looked up some quotes about it. Have a read, and the pictures speak for themselves.
Half the joy of life is in little things taken on the run… but let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us.
Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air.
