A walk in the park

We all know that grief and sorrow are not a walk in the park. But sometimes you just have to walk anyway.

I took these pictures this morning in the Kauffman Memorial Garden, a real gem in the heart of Kansas City. I am finding the camera's eye is helping me see things I might otherwise overlook. That helps. Movement and beauty can help us heal. The walk and the flowers brought me some comfort. I hope they do for you, too.

  1. You have a good eye. Very nice, and I'm glad it's helping.

  2. Remember Ranger Rick? You were pretty good at looking at things way back then.These are lovely. Thank you. Mom

  3. Nature is pretty amazing. When you peek closer it gets even more incredible. When you get Up Close and Personal, the details in nature become giant works of art, all by themselves. Love the shots, Laura! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love the bugs, the bees, the close eye. Thanks! Gorgeous.

  5. Gorgeous photos! The grasshoppers especially made me smile. So glad that finding beauty through your camera is helping you through. I know that for me, creativity like taking photos or art journaling were huge in my healing. Sending gentle hugs.

  6. Nature is so beautiful, and thanks for reminding us and sharing!
