Aware (ah-wah-reh)

"This pretty word describes fleeting moments of fading beauty. Normally used to depict the last couple of days of cherry blossom season, it also refers to that sad, bittersweet feeling when something  is so good that you don't want it to finish. Like a tasty hamburger or excellent book."
Georgia Frances King, Frankie magazine July/Aug 2012

What a lovely word. When you read that, don't you just think, "yes, I know what that means"?
I often feel that way about a good book, I don't want to stop reading, but I don't want it to finish.
The same with pretty blooms. There's that bittersweet moment when they start to fade and you know you'll have to toss them out before long.
I think the sky is like that too. When you see that amazing sunrise or sunset, you know it's very temporary, it changes and fades in an instant. So here I share with you a morning sky that I snapped last week. So beautiful!

It's cold, rainy and windy here this morning, but then it is winter. I'm feeling a bit better but coughing like no-one's business. Bit over it!
Wishing you a happy week :)


  1. I think I'm becoming more aware of beauty if that's possible?
    I've come down with this stupid cold, about to head home to the window seat.
    Good to hear you're feeling better,

  2. I read that out to hubby last night. It's such a lovely word. Beautiful pic too m'love xxx

  3. What a beautiful sky you've captured. I love hot drinks and snuggling in front of the heater in wintery weather but despise the colds and flus that go with it :) Hope your cough improves soon but glad you're feeling a bit better x

  4. I saw that word too - and just gasped at the perfection of it!
    Hope the week is improving

  5. I know just what you mean. I always anticipate things and then am sad to see them end.
    Hope the weather gets better!

    The snake I pictured is not venomous ..its just a little water snake (the photo made it look much larger then it was) .. lordly no...if theere were venomous snakes in that water I would be gone!! :)

  6. I always wonder why good things are always short , and i decided it's because they can leave space and times to new little beautiful things. Otherwise, we're so taken by our things, that I think we wouldn't notice anymore.
    Hi Molly!!


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
