The best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
— Robert Louis Stevenson said that

Nice advice. Your photos have such a vintage or timeless look with the muted colors. I keep waiting for you to pop one out with bright intense colors and shock us all. 😉

This reminds me, Sherri, about the importance of living in the NOW. And about being thankful for the little things!

Robert Louis Stevenson was very right. We tend to travel far and wide to find what matters in life, while in fact it’s just right where you are. I like you nostalgic and beautiful photo. 🙂

You’ve taken a modern photo and created the mood of R.L. Stevenson’s subject very well. Love his thoughts here.
