My fellow blogger and friend Jodi over at LIFE IN BETWEEN, published a post titled Perspective which included a picture of a mushroom.
Here is my comment to her post –
Jodi, I have taken many walks recently at my new location. And yes, I have seen nature in a different perspective. Humm, I think I may have an idea for a post. Happy Wednesday!
Thank you Jodi for your perspective, here is my post –
There is no going to the gym lately, I do not always have the energy or want to be around other people and then there is the tube coming out of my back attached to a bag. So the form of exercise presently is walking, some are short and others are longer. When taking these walks my perspective is different, I see nature differently, I see greenery, trees, flowers, water and yes mushrooms.
Why do I see nature differently? Is it because I am taking more time to see nature, to view it and to take it all in? Is it because I have less responsibilities and more time to relax and enjoy life? Or is it because I have cancer and my life is now lived differently with a future of unknowns.
I see mushrooms on my walks and as Jodi wrote in her post –
we need to look
Wikepedia.org indicates the following –
A mushroom (or toadstool) is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source.
To Jodi and I, it is more than that. It is perspective.
I see the mushrooms on my walks and I see a different perspective; I see it all differently than before.
