Our Life’s Scenery

18 Apr

If we could take a photo of our life’s scenery, how quickly would it change?

I was away from home for four days, and when I came back I uttered a “wow” of disbelief. During this time, the buds on the trees turned into leaves and the view from my balcony changed to almost beyond recognition. Most of the changes in the photos below took place over these four days…

Realising how quickly change can come around in nature makes me appreciate its current state. I take in the beauty of the spring flora, knowing that it is only here for a limited time. I do not think about how beautiful the trees outside my house will look in the autumn, because I will have the opportunity to experience this in the future.  Spring is here, spring is now – I must make the most of it before nature takes its course and changes the scenery.

In the same way, let’s save our thoughts of the future until it arrives. Today, we must appreciate the beautiful scenery of our present, because it is only here for a limited time.
