Snapshots & Whatnot: AMOOSING (A MOOSE!)

“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.” Dr. Seuss

With chaotic challenges the world over, here’s to looking for opportunities to smile wherever & whenever we can (even in unexpected places.)

During a visit to Canada awhile ago my brother and I decided to go for a scenic walk in Banff National Park. Starting out on a such a journey, you never know what (or who) you might encounter…

a birdie (or two?)

a chipmunk (munching away)

with a buddy (at play.)

Traipsing along there was often more than one way to go (straight up the mountain or with the easy path flow?)

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.” Dr. Seuss

There were trees to see & places to rest, but then…

an unexpected EYE-FEST OF BEST!!

A MOOSE (on the LOOSE!)

AMOOSING as it was for us to see, we decided to to take care and (with littlest fanfare) we hightailed it out of there!

grace, peace & unexpected Amoosement

“So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life is a great balancing act.” Dr. Seuss
