It's everywhere around you!

As many of you know I am a big hiker/walker. With my health issues this year getting out in nature is a delight, whatever the temperature. I feel the weight of worries lift off my shoulders being out in nature and all around me I see beauty in sometimes the smallest things and sometimes the largest bigger picture view.

Sometimes it is the sun rising upon the tree tops, the greys and blues changing to light filled orange tree tops and grass a vivid green rolling down a hill. Other times, it is the moss around the roots of a trunk or settled over a rock beside the path.

Moss on roots

I realize as an antiques dealer my eyes look for beauty as I walk around. And I am always amused by discussions on what is art. Maybe you read about the banana on a wall that is considered art and how another artist ate it. Which the orginal artist said was OK, and replaced the banana with another.

So, yesterday, I was out walking and came across the following lying at the side of a road, and wondered, is it art or trash? All depends on your point of view I guess. What will you pay me for it?

Nick,

You have me wondering, what is it?  And we too love long walks in Nature and count our blessing when we see our beaches where we love walking.  A

Good Morning Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 

Glad you could get out into nature. God's creation shows evidence of Him in everything. I spend way to much time "working" and should follow your lead

Hello Nick,  Walking is good and hope it is helping you.  I should be walking more for my sugar level but this time of year I have to be on the mill more.

Nick,

Such amazing views you have captured, even the banana. I don't get a chance to hike much, but i still find a good long walk very therapeutic.

As they say, Nick, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One of the things I love most about our walks is that Mother Nature never disappoints. You never know what you'll see.

Hello Nick - I often wonder and ask(typically myself):  what is that?  Getting out and exploring is a good thing.

Santa Dawes when I get out in the woods, in nature I feel all my issues, problems, challenges or whatever I want to call them lift off my shoulders and my chest and I can breathe. It is worth doing!

Will Hamm even when it is cold I enjoy getting out. The beginning of this year I even walked in the snow and enjoyed it. It is just a matter of preparing for it.

Nina Hollander I needed it this past year and glad I am getting my energy back.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I need that time to process everything going through my head. It is like meditation for me.

Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE when you walk with your eyes open there are always things that can make you wonder and are there to be enjoyed.

Kathy Streib Mother Nature is amazing from the colours to the shapes around you, clouds, moss, old gnarled tree roots and trees, the sound of water bubbling along a creek bed, to the smooth flat water reflecting everything around it....etc. You just have to be open to it.

That is definitely an art work I can live without James Dray 

Michael Jacobs it is surprising how nature can make us ponder what it is, often taking on the shape of other things till we get close enough to see reality.

Such amazing beauty before our eyes - it's there for the taking and, of course, the interpretation!

Some folks choose less healthy outlets but, you have given yourself a life-long healthy addiction to walking and the outdoors. In my mind, it's the best outlet one can have, Nick!

As to the find (the last shot) - perhaps a little duck tape would add some value?!

Debe Maxwell, CRS I am sure that is all that is missing. Art sometimes has me shaking my head, especially when I hear what someone has paid for supposed art.

I know, right?! Where did I miss the creativity boat? A duck-taped banana and I didn't think of that? It's downright depressing!!
