All is a Miracle

Cotton Sky

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child– our own two eyes. All is a miracle.  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

    The sky is stunning & the meditation narrative is very thought provoking. Wonderful match for today.

    It sure is true about miracles. Your photo contains two of my favorite miracles, clouds and spring.

    I really like the sky in this photo, Bo! The clouds are amazing. And there’s no snow on the ground!! 🙂

    I could take a slow walk on those clouds. Beautiful.

    I love the quote by Thich Nhat Hanh–and anything said by Thich Nhat Hanh. Gorgeous clouds with the deep blue sky. 🙂

    I bird in an area that is so similar to this shot… (it’s a great place to see the meadowlark right now as they are setting up nests in the meadows.) This is a gorgeous shot. I keep attempting to capture the scene like you have here – it has a simplistic beauty and strips nature down to it bare essentials however, your composition is what I just cannot master – I’m completely envious! Really beautiful!
