Tina shares a wonderful post about gratitude.
I am in Phoenix for a few days and enjoy hiking whenever I go to somewhere new. The other day, I went with Kathy and others. It was a beautiful walk in the midst of an urban, which is not always visible, setting revealing its desert ecosystem.
As we walked, we talked about the beauty of the desert and the subtle colours and the richness revealed. To take note of the world we live in and who we share it with, animate and inanimate, is a part of the conversation we have to express our gratitude. For me, an essential aspect of the conversation is being attentive and mindful of the world I share.

In the other pictures, there was a focus on the desert and its richness.
I apologize for the lack of editing on the pictures. I am using new apps and learning how to share and edit with them on the fly.
