The Beauty of a Moment

imageNow that my body has gotten a break from the IV antibiotics and I am feeling a bit better, I have been enjoying being able to look outward at the beauty all around me. This weekend I was fortunate enough to go to my friend’s house in Allentown, PA. He has an exquisite piece of property with absolutely no houses behind him but rather fields, trees and sky for as far as you can see.

I stood out on his deck and marveled at all the magnificent Autumn colors around me–green, yellow, brown, orange, red. I never noticed these colors the last few years because, quite frankly, I was too sick to care. It was such a special moment being able to stand out there being fully there to marvel at the beauty surrounding me.

Tomorrow I start an intense regimen of antibiotics so the moment I had at my friend’s looking upward and outward without any pain, fuzziness or fatigue may not last. But I am thankful nonetheless–even if it is just for a moment.
