Notice.

Life is all around you.

The sun’s rays shine through the ants’ little bodies, crawling down the branch in a prefect line, all carrying their parcels of food.

Perched, on the highest branch, is a robin bird singing to her friends miles out. She is getting lost in her own music.

A short way off, a tiny frog has sat himself between two leaves on a mango tree, taking his fine time until he hops off to his next resting spot.

On the side of the path scurries a millipede, no one knows where his 100 legs intend to carry him.   Not even he knows. The millipede is enjoying the journey, not the destination.

A leap or two off the cobbled path is a puddle of a pond. Inside three minuscule fish play, enjoying each others company and the silent stillness of the forest.

In the scrub of the bush bounces a baby rabbit, playing careless tricks on her unknowing mother. She loves the feel of the leaves up against her fluffy fur.

Effortlessly, a butterfly swoops above a bush of daisies, it may have seemed like she left a trail of radiant colours and patterns behind her.

But you never saw all this life around you, because, you never looked.

Open your eyes. Notice.
