The end of another year... 2008 slides back into history and we march forward into 2009. But before she disappears from view, I want to stop and contemplate the abundance of beauty I experienced in 2008.
Here are just a few of the those moments that provoked the "beauty response" in me this year:
~ Learning that Oprah Winfrey had produced a 10 part series on Ekhart Tolle's A New Earth and was offering it free online to the public
~ Watching the grace and power of all those synchronized bodies in the opening ceremonies for the Chinese Olympics; experiencing the pride they felt as hosts and the warmth of the hospitality they extended to the world
~ Sharing in the wave of relief and joy that spread throughout the world when Barak Obama won the election for US Presidency
~ And most recently, waking up to a Winter Wonderland in Eugene
We are so blessed! To be surrounded by all this beauty!
How about you? What was the Beauty that stood out for you this year?
