Simple Joy

I've learned to look for the simple pleasures in life. This beautiful evening shot was unexpectedly made even more special a few seconds later...

One of the things I do before I go to sleep each night is to ask myself "What was the wonder of my day?" I believe it helps me to notice and appreciate the small wonders in my life - and live less for the big and exciting things, which are of course less likely to happen. A life full of small delights is surely one that brings us a deep seated joy?

I've found 'The Wonder of the day' a lovelli little exercise to do with children before they fall asleep. It's something you ask them, and then something they ask you - a real sharing between you.
