Finding joy in nature is a way I nourish my spirit and gain peace of mind especially when dealing with difficult times. It is easy to think of enjoying outdoor Colorado as doing something – hiking, biking, climbing or skiing. What is glorious is to slow down, way down, and just spend time, being – with a tree, a fresh green leaf, or even a sprig of last season’s copper colored oak leaves still on the branch.
I met this cluster of new growth shortly after dawn on my morning hike. I watched enthralled as the sun gently touched the leaves and I inhaled the joy of that moment. That feeling stays with me for hours illuminating my choices and creative expressions. Here’s is my simple piece of photo art Joyful Arrival. You can find the wall art josephliberti.com.
Wishing you joy!
