The fog had not yet cleared, the air had a nip to it that warranted wearing a light jacket, and I was dang happy that Lucy did not step on the snake that popped from the underbrush and slithered across the trail in front of her. Considering the welcome change in the weather and the avoided trip to the vet juxtaposed to the state of the world I had witnessed on the morning news, I thought to myself, What an awesome day!
A few minutes later, when we crested the hill I was struck by nature’s keen resilience in a tiny patch of wildflowers growing from soil that hadn’t had a lick of rain in months. I thought how cool it would be if I could bottle that feeling of profound awesomeness* that I was experiencing and share it with others.
Through the miracle of photography, the internet, and this blog, of course.
So if you’re feeling like the glass is half empty today, try taking a deep breath, looking around you, and focusing on the beauty that transforms into a shot of tried and true Awesome Sauce.
*Caution: Side effects may include eyes bugging from face, smiles stretching from ear to ear, and great, blustering gasps being sucked through a gaping mouth, all of which are not life threatening. Indeed, the joy inspired by this awesome eye-candy may prolong life, as it has often been known to bubble forth from the Fountain of Youth, which springs from within.
No purchase necessary – only an open mind.
Sauce of the day:
You may shut your mouth now.

Have an Awesome Day!
