Beauty in Gray Days

Here in the Midwest, the glorious fall days give way to what seems to be a winter of endless overcast days and bare tree branches. On one particularly dreary day I decided to “practice what I preach” on my walk to work by trying to see with fresh eyes by letting my mind wander and paying attention to whatever caught my attention in the moment.

Here is what I saw on my 20-minute walk through my neighborhood.

The limbs on trees were bare, but it made it easier to appreciate the bark on trunks!

The forecast calls for the possibility of snow in the coming days – perhaps blizzard conditions! I’m wondering what a walk then will bring!
