Do you ever take the time to sit in your own backyard? One day I did just so; I forgot all that my backyard had to offer. Winter trees, grape vines, dead yellow grass. No those aren't so-called "beautiful aspects" of nature but to me they are. To think that dead grass can return to a bright and luscious green, the trees to sprout more leaves. I breathed in the air, the mystical winter colors, and thought to myself that we all go through these short moments of thinking our lives have gone into a lackluster state of being. That lackluster state of being always turns into something spectacular. It sounds cliche but that one day of sitting and wondering made me realize how beautiful the little things I take for granted really are; to realize the knowledge I may gain by simply sitting in my backyard.
