For those of you who are Twitter-inclined, I recently started following an account that has quickly become one of my favorites. It's called Earth Pics, and they post pictures from all around the world, and these photos are absolutely GORGEOUS. It makes me feel several things -- first, that this Earth is truly a work of art, and there are so many hidden treasures out there to be seen and experienced. More importantly, we really need to appreciate those magical time when we are just in the right place at the right time and catch something breathtaking, like a rainbow (or, a double rainbow, which I had the pleasure of seeing while in Ireland; picture posted below). I've begun to save the ones that I really fall in love with, and I'm planning on making a folder for use of background photos for my desktop. Sometimes we just need that extra little oomph of motivation, knowing that the world is a beautiful thing, especially when we're lucky enough to see it at work.
vvv Several pictures I took while in Glendalough, Ireland. If you look close, there are actually two rainbows!
