As my car whizzed along a main road, I kept getting glimpses of breathtaking vistas. The surrounding countryside in this part of New England is absolutely stunning.
There are rolling hills in the background, green grass for what seems like miles, towering trees, fluffy clouds in the blue sky above, and quiet.
The setting sun partially illuminated a tree to my left (photo at top of post). Click, click. I couldn't stop taking photos, hoping to capture, at least in part, the intense beauty of the scene that made my heart beat fast.
After the visit, on the way back down the dirt road, pinkish golden clouds in the sky reflected in the pond, creating a scene like a painting. Once again, I stopped the car and took pictures. How could anything be that gorgeous? What gifts we have on earth when we have eyes to see and ears to hear!
No matter how heavy my heart may get over some detail of life, living in such a place as New England can always cheer me up.
Being surrounded by gifts of Mother Nature perks up the spirit and fills my heart with gratitude.
DO YOU ENJOY THE COUNTRYSIDE OR DO YOU PREFER BEING IN A CITY?
