February 18 - THE INNOVATOR

the twenty-ninth day of Freedom

Another day of fabulous designs on the pool ice. Nature is showing herself as The Innovator. It would never have occurred to me to create such a design. The colors, the variety of textures, and the combination of the elements are outrageous and surreal. I get very excited when I see displays of brilliance like this. It inspires me to look more often and to observe more diligently, in order not to miss out on any new artwork.

We can also play the role of the innovator. We are, after all, creative beings. We can dream the impossible dream, then figure out how to make it a reality. I feel so blessed to be living in a part of the world where free expression is not only tolerated, it is encouraged. If the pool can produce masterpieces this inspiring to me, the least I can do in return is to be Nature's agent and share her work with the rest of the world. As a bonus, she inspires me to excel.

Could today be a day of innovation for you? What form might that take?
