Almost every day I walk or drive past an office building whose plantings include one gorgeous beautyberry bush. I've watched as the flowers faded and leaves dropped off, leaving nothing but bright, metallic violet clusters. Every time I pass, I want to stop and photograph them, but there is always a reason why I cannot - supervisory issues with children, lack of a camera in the car, poor light outside.
Yesterday I made it happen. I told my husband that I was going for a walk, and that he was welcome to join me but that he had to be in charge of herding kids while I took pictures of berries.
We went, we had unexpected fun along the way, and I was in a state of macro bliss once we arrived at the hallowed shrub. It's a small thing, but it makes a big difference.
Does something call to you that seems both insignificant and important? What stands in your way? Can you find a way to make it happen?
