One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Dale Carnegie

I am guilty of this. I wish I was better at living in the moment but it is something that I have to continually work on. I  often feel it is my life lesson.  I am constantly making myself stop and look. Really look. Really see what is around me. Not what was around me or what is going to be around me. What am I experience right this moment.  As they say,  “stop and smell the roses”. Perhaps this painting will remind me, and you,  to do just that.
