Small Things, Big Smiles

Posted on Saturday, June 6th, 2009 at 3:17 pm by Lee Welles

As I was walking to my office, I started to think about all the small "Gaia-gifts" that make me smile. Here is my top ten, and why I picked them.
1-Monarch Caterpillars: because they remind me that transformation is possible
2-Walking sticks (the bugs): because Gaia's craftiness is cool
3-Bees:because they remind me the sweet nectar of life is there for the taking if you're willing to get "busy as a bee" and work for it.
4-Animal tracks: because, if you examine them and follow them, they always tell a story.
5-Burdocks: They are Gaia's Legos!
6-Puffy clouds: because they are a good excuse to lay on your back and let your imagination run wild.
7-Daisies: because they smile back.
8-Leaves: because they translate the whispers of the wind.
9-Ladybugs: because at least some bugs should be "cute."
10-Dandelion fluff: because it reminds me of the ingenuity of seeds.
