Day 14 of the #AtoZChallenge is here! N is the letter for the day and what better theme than Nature Naturally! I love photography and enjoy capturing everything I see. Whether it is while waiting at the dentist, or when I go walking, there is always something interesting. Photography is a way to calm my mind and whenever I am struggling with something, I simply grab my camera and go out on a brisk walk. The walk cools me down, takes the edge of whatever is freaking me out, and opens my mind to all the little things around me that I enjoy so much. I read somewhere that seeing greenery is good the eyes. It is – and it is good for the soul, too! The little things, you see, make the big things.
So here we go – let’s enjoy some moments in nature naturally!

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Kahlil Gibran
I thank you God for this most amazing day,
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is natural,
which is infinite, which is yes. ~e.e. cummings
A sensitive plant in a garden grew,
And the young winds fed it with silver dew,
And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light,
and closed them beneath the kisses of night.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Sensitive Plant,” 1820
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do. ~Galileo
Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral. ~John Burroughs
And my favorite:
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. ~Lao Tzu
