The Coming of Spring and Easter March 5

cupsConcentration

When you contemplate the big, full sunrise, the more mindful and concentrated you are, the more beauty of the sunrise is revealed to you. Suppose you are offered a cup of tea, very good tea.  If your mind is distracted, you cannot really enjoy the tea. You have to be mindful of the tea, you have to be concentrated on it, so the tea can reveal its fragrance and wonder to you. That’s why mindfulness and concentration are such sources of happiness.

About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
