There’s a peacefulness here, though its purposeful, intentional on my part, finding beauty in the simple things. Every morning I wake to the call of a Rufous-tailed hummingbird outside the bungalow and melodious songs of distant cryptic birds. There are photogenic spiders to admire and unique plants to photograph. I left my DSLR at home so all the photos are from my cell phone or my Lumix point-and-shoot camera. Not the best, but fun.
