the beauty of now.


now is beautiful; maybe it's the raw, crisp crunch of walking over leaves or the way sun flickers through foliage and caresses you; maybe it's taking pictures of your favourite things and watching light leaks and shadows dance and quiver on the wall; maybe it's slowly tearing open the envelope of a letter from a friend; or when rain is pitter, pattering on the window and fall is in the air; maybe it's reminding yourself that, yes, time is going by and you need to enjoy now and stop worrying about the future. now counts; enjoy it.
