The Small Details Matter

Last week was a lesson for me in having big expectations. Almost every day I was feeling let  down or disappointed by a person or situation.  It's no secret, I'm a perfectionist, who rarely meets up to my own expectations.

The low point was going to the garden orientation Thursday night. I sat in a room with 10 others waiting for a presentation that never happened. We got an e-mail that explained the mix up the next day, but it was still disappointing.

So here is a photo I took while on a walk through the park last week. When I saw this today it made me realize that sometimes I spread my attention so far that I miss out on the small details. I like this photo for the colors and textures and the tiny colony of mushrooms growing on this old log. There is a perfection in nature that can always be counted on. This photo reminds me that sometimes I just need to change my focus.
