Life is full of goodbyes, of seasons, years and even night and days, The eternal loop we lives in. But Goodbye to one thing is Hello to that which follows. Thanks for your comment!

Thank you very much Diannah!

You are so right Joseph, thanks!

Thank you Kaye!

Katerina, you are too kind! Thanks!

So many let life pass them by. I always stop, & try to capture the moment.

A very thought provoking image, Gun, I love it. Vote

Thank you Anand!

Nice creation---------------Anand

Thank you Marlene!

I have to repeat myself ... You are such a great artist!!!

Fantastic - vote

Thank you very much Lenore! Yes creativity nourishes the child in us. Adults are a little boring for a child :-)

I do think your description is perfect. We allow ourselves to be turned away from these small miracles by the weight of the cares of everyday life. You said it well, children are generally the ones to see all things as wondrous and beautiful, and you were right that we all, at times, regret the loss of this special "sight". Maybe we should include artists here, too; they see things others pass by.

Carol, I had to start again, made it so very wrong with a word that should not be there. You are quite right Carol, we have different phases in life, where different things are important. Seems you are back to childhood wonder. Thanks for you comment!

Thank you very much Diannah!

Instant vote and fave. I always am attracted to frames within the frame. I cannot possibly say any better what has already been said by so many fine artists and friends. I, too, believe that creation is the key to healing. It allows us to get out of our minds, the danger of living too long in the adult world.

Touches my heart, deeply. Daily life can get so busy sometimes we forget to live it...then something traumatic may happen and bring back into focus what and who is really important in our lives. Life is precious and short. Your work is beautiful and inspiring. V/F

Your description is a good one, Gun. As a youngster, nothing escaped my notice - not the leaves, streams, bugs, snakes, rocks - nothing was too small to love and get excited about. Then came the teen years, boys, angst, school, all that awful stuff, and I didn't bend over to pick up that lovely leaf anymore or admire the crane fly on the screen. When our son was tiny, everything was a miracle to him - his delight in his world reopened our eyes. Then, as he grew up, we again got sidetracked by daily life - the rushing to work, rushing home, news, weather, finances, name it and it intruded on the wonder of the world around us. I retired, bought a simple camera and - miracle of miracles - it turns out I also got a new set of eyes. Perhaps we need to constantly find challenges that produce wonder in the results - new things to explore, new visions. Change can be good! You've done an extraordinary job with this image:>) V/F
