As this Memorial Day weekend begins. I would like to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful and safe holiday. Remembering the men and women that have died, served and who are currently serving in our Military is an important annual event. If it were not for ALL of these brave men and women I would not be able to photograph things I find beauty in and have the ability to share them here on Weather Underground. I also would not have the ability and pleasure of making this blog entry.
I personally want to thank each and everyone of you.
I have been given a reminder of the beauty that nature holds so close to me each and everyday of my life. Over the years I have neglected to drive the 25 miles it takes to get to the shores of Lake Michigan from my home. The beauty that she beholds is truly magnificent and many take this for granted, I being one. I vowed to return to her shores during 2013 at various locations to photograph her beauty as I see it. The photographs I have posted today May 25th are just the beginning of that vow to make these visits a reality.
The daffodil photos I also posted today, represent the beauty of nature that is right outside of my front door. We all have this beauty available to us on a daily basis no matter where we are. Some of us see it and others do not. Our work schedules, raising our children and just living our lives way too fast become obstacles to us and result in a blind eye to that beauty.
So during this Memorial Day weekend. As you remember the men and women who have served our country, please also remember to take the time to see the beauty of nature that is around you and be thankful. It does not matter where you are. The beauty IS there. You just need to take the time to see it.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
