As I walked briskly through the streets of downtown, I tried to make a point of staying present and being aware of what was going on around me. It's so easy to be distracted by our destination and lose sight of the proverbial journey itself. In this case, I had no real destination in mind when I stumbled upon something beautiful. The Crystal Garden at Confederation Park.
The Crystal Garden is a part of the Winterlude festivities in Ottawa. It's a place where international ice sculptors gather to compete at their craft and proudly display their impressive results.
I went out walkin' and was happy that I didn't have a destination in mind. Here's to the beautiful things that you can find when you take the time to just "be".
Until next time, friends...
