Labor Day Meditation

I'm taking today off, but I wanted to leave you with a photo meditation. This was taken this May at Lost Maples State Park, about an hour and a half southwest of Austin. It is a beautiful place, which this picture barely hints at.

Take a look at this seemingly simple landscape. The rolling hills, the greenery covering the land. The haze of distance, the elegance of the live oak branch entering the frame.

Look at it. Think of how much time went in to the creation of this place. Think of the creatures unseen in this photo. Think of the insects flying through the air. The trillions upon trillions of living bacteria in the soil.

Think of what is beyond our perception at any given time, yet what exists nonetheless. Now, what is happening within you?

Best wishes for a restful holiday.
