God is in the details

“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” ~ William Morris

“God is in the details.” ~ Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Nature is filled with lots of details and it’s fascinating to witness flora as well as fauna existing together right here in my garden! Whether it be a tiny spider hanging out under a flower petal, a little snail trying to find it’s way home or a busy busy bee buzzing around, I am happy to share these photos with you in response to the WordPress Photo Challenge – Details BUT even more important is this reminder: take some time to smell a flower or two, pause from the busyness of life and relax in the middle of a garden or park, inhale and then exhale … because life is short and the only guarantee is death. Be smart 🙂
