shades of green

Recently, I got to go on a sunrise trek of-sorts with my dad. We've never done that before. It was nice. We didn't really need to say anything; we just got some time to be in nature and be quiet and be together. As we were walking, we came to a spot about 20 feet off of the main road where we planted ourselves on a group of boulders and sat in silence for about 15 minutes. It's funny, the things you notice whenever you're not talking. Songbirds get louder; the scenery around you becomes more vibrant and detailed. Well, maybe those things never really changed, but the way I looked at them did. I think everyone needs time like that once in a while: time to be quiet and notice.
