We've all been there... you're working, walking along, riding, etc... and something just grabs your attention. Perhaps in the periphery, or maybe it was just so breathtaking and/or out of phase with the surroundings that it struck you as odd enough to completely stop what you were doing to absorb and capture the moment.
It's those moments, those brief interludes that I'm interested in... those that have the power to make us physically pause in this ever-connected, always busy world and just take in the scene.
What made you pause this week?
For me, it was a singular flower stem that popped up in my backyard for no apparent reason. There are no other flowers in the surrounding area, nor any in my neighbor's yards that resemble this one; yet it persevered and somehow brought a touch of color and flair to an area that's rather benign at any other time. I don't have a clue what type it is, but am pleased it decided to grow where it did.
