One - Simplicity

The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. ~~ Hans Hofmann
Winter does this. Leaves fall, bushes turn to sticks, snow muffles noise.

What was hidden in the blossoming of summer and the busyness of harvest seems to step forward.

And speak.

Beauty in its time.

Thanks, Tshs. I love that little red bush seeming to revel in happiness and joy while all the other foliage sleeps off its summer/fall brilliance.

"It's my turn! Yippee!"

(I feel like that sometimes - quietly reveling in my own private joy. Like a secret moment of bliss between me and God.)

And that reveling little red bush is drenched in sunshine. That's proof to me that God loves a reveler. ;p
