Looking Up

Most of us are going through life looking straight ahead and 'getting on' with our daily routine. 

We hardly ever look around and notice the life that is going on everywhere.

It's good sometimes to just stop what we are doing. Take a look up. 

You may be surprised what you see.

And it was there all along.

Going about what it does everyday.

Sometimes it's the little things that we forget to 'see'.

But most of the time it's the things that we pass without even a notice.

It's a good habit to get into. Just stop. Look up. Look down. Look around you.

And begin to notice what the universe has given you.


  1. Wow, You know, I was reading Mal Torres most recent post when I had noticed on her side bar, a blog called Ocean Breezes had posted 9 mins ago. So Curious, I came here to read what you had to post about. 30 minutes have passed, without me even feeling it! Your Blog is Just beautiful and Very deep! I just love it
    Adding you to my favorites! Keep it up!

  2. Good Morning!
    Blogger is not my friend this morning and I didn't get all the pictures. :( What I saw was your always lovely pictures. I am a cloud watcher, myself, and love to see the changing of the seasons in the trees.
    Have a great day!

  3. Lovely post...We live in the middle of 29 acres, 15 miles from the Appalachian Trail!
    We are surrounded by natural beauty and never take it for granted!

  4. Lyn at " Everyday Life " was postingabout skies today too. I try to make time to look up & appreciate.

  5. Enjoying nature's bounty is why my windows have no drapes.....!!!


  6. Since I have retired, I have made it my job to slow down and see things. It's surprisingly hard to do. We're all too much in a hurry, and we miss so much. To be able to stop and look is a gift, and one we should accept joyfully.

  7. I just love pictures of beautiful sky....sigh!

  8. You must have been reading my mind or tapping into the same wavelength I've been on this past week. My camera is loaded with clouds, skies, treetops. Your photos are gorgeous.

  9. Hi Jim! Each day as I stand outside with our dogs I marvel and feel so blessed to live in the country, which was our dream. However, there are times when I forget to see or notice those small things because I get so wrapped up in the big picture--THANKS for the reminder to savor those small moments in the day! And, THANKS for your kind comment on my blog!

  10. This is most definetly one of your best posts. Yes, we are all so guilty of just getting on with life without stopping and well, smelling the roses. Thanks for the reminder.

  11. Yes, God created a big beautiful world for our enjoyment and we should get out and enjoy it more often! Ha...when I got to the part that said, "You might be surprised at what you see. And it was there all along." I thought there must have been something small in the picture that I was supposed to find! So I went back and scoured the pictures, LOL on me. Great post, Jim....

  12. My sentiments exactly. I really do remember to look up quite often, and I often walk into things too! Ha ha! But seriously, I do try to remember to look up and around every day! Have a happy weekend! Susie xx

  13. I always find your posts to be a breath of fresh air. This one reminds me of how as a kid I would lie on the grass, look up at the sky and make images out of the clouds. We'd do that for hours! Thanks for the memories!

  14. This has always been my favorite thing. I will stare out a window or just sit outside looking up. Masmerizing. I have to stop myself from staring out the sunroof of my car while I'm driving. It was really hard when I had a convertable.


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
