Everyday Notice

I am sure there are days when suddenly you feel alive, awake and you take notice of something – the detail, an emotion, a posture. I do the school run each day. The car is packed with kids, bags and chaos. There is noise, grumbling, often everyone talking at once, the odd phone pinging, music playing. And then we turn into the driveway and I see this. I shot this as I drove down the driveway last week, simply to remind myself just how stunning this place is. That everyday I need to take notice of the great and good gifts that surround my senses. And stay awake to appreciate the beauty that is everywhere in the everyday.
