Walking to beautiful Forsyth Park here in Savannah, HR and I came upon this old Spanish Moss-covered tree we had passed many a time before.

But this time, the tree beckoned us over.

“What,” I asked, still not sure what was going on.

“Why do you all walk past me, ignoring me, disrespecting me? I have been here long before any of you arrived.”

And for the first time in, well, forever, I saw the tree as a living being. A fellow creature on planet earth.

A tree who “sees and understands.”

This morning I’m marveling at how the “little things” we encounter in daily life can sometimes bring sudden bursts of joy to us.

“Close Encounters of the Little Kind”

A couple of weeks ago Robert and I were up near Monticello, NY and took a little walk. “Look, Neal!” he excitedly pointed, with a little too much morning verve for me. At first all I saw was a tree with splotchy marks on it, but getting closer I saw it … him … Mr. Tree!

And somehow Mr. Tree brought unexpected but welcome joy to our morning walk.

What little thing have you noticed lately that brought a smile or an “aww/awe” to your life?
