Every day I take a walk with my kids around neighborhood. It’s a great way to break up the day and there are always new things to discover. Yesterday we found 7 monarch caterpillars chomping on a milkweed plant, their colorful stripes standing out among the half eaten leaves. We know where all the spots are to find the neighborhood kitties; which ones are mean and which ones will let us pet them. All in all, it’s always a fun little outing. Yesterday Genevieve found this odd looking seed “stalk” that had fallen from a tree. As I studied it, I realized that nature could only manufacture something so beautiful. That’s when I started thinking that no matter how nasty and horrible the current events of the world seem, you can still always find beauty in the world.
