Small leaf. Big meaning.
Sweat the small stuff
London, ON, July 2011
I'd like to end off our week-long exploration of "big" with a picture of something that's actually small. It's a leaf, something most of us would simply walk past without giving much of a second thought. But in the overall scheme of things, I believe it matters. It ensures we breathe, that our air is clean, that we have shade, that we have something to sit under when the world offers us no shelter otherwise.
I took this just before we bundled the kids into the car and set off on the long journey east to visit family. It reminded me that the little things matter as much as anything else, and it sometimes helps to stop and take them in.
Your turn: What other small things matter to you?
One more thing: Our new Thematic theme, red, kicks off tonight at 7:00 Eastern. We hope you'll pop back in then.
