These words are from this quote - "It is very sinple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple" - Rabindranth Tagore.
I found them in the most recent post of 'Beating the Bounds' blogger Mark.
His post was filled with delightful images of primroses, moths, butterflies, spring buds, violets, bumblebees, cowslips, hoverflies, marsh marigolds and a blackbird.
The post concluded with this quote.
"Instructions for living a life.
Tell about it"
- Mary Oliver
These words epitomise my outlook on life. This post will have few words, just photos of the beauty that has made me happy in the past few weeks, whilst out and about in our wonderful Aussie outdoors.
Reflection of a bird diving for a refreshing dip. This activity was regularly repeated.
We were walking along the shoreline of a reservoir when we spotted Mother Duck with her very young ducklings. They had us laughing with their antics on the lily pads.
We had to tear ourselves away. About 50m further on, we spotted this little fellow who had to have been a sibbling. We just hoped he managed to swim back to his Mum.
On another occasion, this echidna crossed our path. He waddled ahead of us until he found his hollow log beside the path.
Frenzied feeding on the ponds.
Over the past few weeks our hikes have been slowed by the abundance of wildlife just begging to be photographed.
On Saturday evening we were able to slow down completely and relax on the lawns of the Gold Coast's new outdoor entertainment centre, along with another 15,000 patrons. We were all here for the performance of 'The Symphony of the World' - a captivating and sensational National Geogrphic film supported bythe full Queensland Chamber Orchestra. The orchestral backing to this wildlife spectacular was sensational.
Yes, finding happiness is simple. Just stop, look and listen.
I would love to read your comment.
