Bigger Picture Moments: May 2, 2013

Everyday is made up of millions of little moments.

Little moments of clarity, understanding, creativity, beauty, among the chaos of motherhood and life. Those little moments many times offer us a glimpse of the Bigger Picture. The breath of fresh air that gets us through the mundane day to day tasks. A little push, or validation that we might just be doing things right.

Too often we get caught up in the busyness of the day to day. Caught up in the doing of the moment rather than the living of the moment. We focus on the to do lists, the errands, the obligations. We loose sight of the little things. The small moments of beauty. The Simple Moments that make up the Bigger Picture.

We want to take time and see our simple moments.

We want to see yours.

Won’t you join us today? Reflect upon something simple — or simply magical — that’s resonated with you this week, then share it with us!

Plant Bigger Picture Poetry ~ Featuring Adrienne

plant1

Our new theme for April is PLANT. Whether we’re celebrating the arrival of spring in the evidence of plants all around us, placing something in the ground so it can grow, planting ideas, or planting ourselves, in April we will spend time ruminating on the growth of great things from small beginnings.

Since April is National Poetry month we asked you to stretch yourself and try your hand at some everyday poetry.  {Don’t think you can? Hayacynth explains how everyone is an Everyday Poet}

Today we are featuring a snippet of Adrienne’s poem:

Simultaneously
caught in a trap and safe at home
stuck and free to go
guilty and no guiltier than anyone else…
I wander from room to room
discovering their ancestral treasures –
disinterested in the goings on –
detached,
yet the center of attention.
Read the rest over at My Memory Art.
