If I was really on top of things, I would make a stuffing, mashed potato and pumpkin pie tree to go with them. Instead, a view found me and set me to thinking about gratitude, about perspective, about how we perceive or frame the moments of our lives and how they frame us.
I spied a really wonderful leaf skewered on a chain link fence. I loved the mosaic decay, the fence, the light...and snagged a shot with my sub-par camera phone.
After looking closer at the photo and digitally tossing in some dressing, I had to go back with my real camera. When I got there, I found this leaf wind-woven into the same fence.
I began thinking about how sometimes views find us, particularly when we pause long enough to notice. So many perspectives to explore and appreciate...
so much beauty...
...in the most unexpected places.
May all our days be thanks givings.
(and may there always be plenty of pie!)
