What a view after the rains here in SA. This photo is taken from my balcony at home.  Sometimes we get so busy with the hectic day to day activities, we forget to observe the beauty that we can find right out our back door.  I love to paint especially water colors...but not sure I could even capture this on canvas.  I've never been one to meditate but am striving more and more to stay still if even for just a moment and appreciate life.  Appreciate what I have been blessed with such as good health, family and friends.  I miss those who have gone on before me but beauty like this helps me to reflect upon the times they were with me!  Wanted to share this beauty with you!
