Sometimes one swallow is enough to make a springtime... [Personal Story]
By daniel on Jun 30, 2006
I don't know how you feel about life, but there's something about which I am most grateful: the ability to draw happinnes from some of the most evanescent moments in life. A striking sunset, a beautiful song, a fragile flower, a sincere smile, or a pair of nesting swallows... Life is not always easy and we all have our frustrating times - and I think Arthur Dent would agree with me on this. But even when I'am feeling depressed, I have found out that there can be some relief to be drawn from the elusive moments of beauty hidden in our day-to-day life. I have not always been able to do so: I guess it's a lesson to be learned over the years.
This morning I took this picture of these two swallows who have elected to nest on my balcony - and I thought:
Waouh! How much beauty can there be in life?
