Neighbors

Yesterday, I was talking to someone about the small worlds that can sometimes exist right under our noses. It made me realize that I don’t know very much about who or what lives in my own backyard. I don’t go up there much because I tend to look at the bigger picture- the weeds, the trash and toys the neighbor kids fling over the wall, the broken chicken coop. Today, though, I went to look for the tiny things hiding between all of that and found quite a few fascinating creatures and colors (and a discarded toy) in just a short time. What a good reminder to make a conscious shift in perspective every now and again.
