Pleasurable contemplation. That, for me, is the best description of the admiration I have when I stand and behold the forces of nature at work. Wild beauty engenders admiration. We’ve had quite a week of weather here in Ireland. I don’t recall ever having hail on four consecutive days in the 15 years we’ve lived here.
I do enjoy the colours of spring and the brighter light. I do enjoy parking along a road and standing on a bank while watching a massive cell moving by. I do enjoy watching the next set making it’s appearance in the distance. I do enjoy turning 180 degrees and seeing another spectacle disappearing into the distance.
