Time for Simple Things!

 

As we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to Celebrate!  We will share different optional themes every month for you to celebrate!

We are continuing through September with this theme: Celebrate the SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE..  We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity.  Come share them with us!    

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.  

*   *   *
What's more simple than walking, talking and listening?  Yet, we seldom make time for it!  I took this picture at the Apple Orchard and thought how important it is to make time for those simple things in life.  

Quiet walks; 
talking and listening to one another, 
hearing birds and the breeze serenade our conversation.  
No agenda, no plan...
just time together to say what pops into our head.
Time to ponder, time to ask, time to think.
When will there be time for the simple things in life?
                                Katrina
