Under the canopy of lush green leaves, we can find solace from the din of a chaotic urban decay. Here, pollution is not apparent. The songs of the birds are melodies that seem to clear the mind. The breeze that cools the warmth from the heat of the sun is a welcome relief. To rest under these trees is not just for the body but for the mind as well.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~John Lubbock
Break the monotony: Are you tired of your daily routine and want to break the monotony before you become something akin to a clockwork?
It is good to once in a while get out of your comfort zone, try things that you haven’t tried yet (be safety conscious though), tick off items in your bucket list by actually making these come true and seek joy where it is usually not found.
These little pockets of adventures will add fuel to your monotonous existence and will make you look forward to the next one.
Peach roses from my aunt’s garden. Personally, the color orange is not a color I am particularly fond of, especially in man-made things like shirts and chairs. But blooms in lighter orange shades like peach and coral are some favorites.
A tiny stick insect on a green leaf. These insects have different sizes and can be easily missed because they blend in the environment well. This photo was taken using a point and shoot camera using macro setting. Very mininal VSCO filter was used to lessen the greens.
Purple is said to be the color of royalty, of nobility, of strength, of mystery and of magic. Combining red and blue, purple feels like a strong color. In some countries this is the color associated with mourning.
Purple too is a favorite among young women.
