There are days when we are too busy/tired/moody/out of touch to notice the beauty around us. On days like that, I like to remember something beautiful that I encountered or experienced in the past. For whatever reason, today I remembered our vacation to Hawaii last year and the picture I took one early morning of an orchid. We stayed at the most amazing inn in Hilo, in the middle of a tropical forest, with a bamboo forest and a waterfall in the back yard. Our bedroom had a window facing south-east – those bright red sunrises got me up and going every single morning. On one of our morning walks, I noticed a timid orchid basking in the early sun. My iPhone camera was enough to capture the beauty that I saw.
