The details are not the details. They make the design. ~ Charles Eames
I awoke this morning a little later than usual and lingered awhile before crawling out of bed.
So much to do in the short amount of time I had left at my sisters house left me feeling a bit paralyzed. Frankly, I didn’t want to start. “Just a little while longer”… my repeated mantra.
But the smell of coffee has a way of changing things; an invisible force beckoning me to rise up and shine.
As I grabbed the coveted cup of coffee, on a whim I also snagged my camera, and headed outside for a walk about the property.
Immediately I was enchanted! Her yard is a feast for the eyes. In the 38 plus years my sister has lived here she has created beautiful vignettes about the property; little details just waiting to be discovered.
There is magic waiting around every corner! Splendid and delightful on their own, but a masterpiece when all are woven together.
As I wandered about, captivated with all I saw, I began to ponder on my own little vignettes.
The little details of my life that have formed who I am today.
None are insignificant or discarded, but are being used to weave a tapestry that has been created for a purpose by a great designer.
I like the sound of that.
