PAYING ATTENTION - One of the many valuable lessons some of our favorite poets stress is the importance of paying attention, affording nature the closest inspection.  We miss so much in life - so many wonders and so many blessings - because we aren't paying attention.  Take, for instance, the tiny Eastern-tailed Blue Butterfly I almost missed seeing this past week.  I was looking for a Bumblebee on Goldenrood and by accident spied the tiny Eastern-tailed Blue.  It was smaller than the nail on my little finger.  Yet, that serendiptious moment proved to be a highlight of the day.  And I almost missed it, and I would have had I not been paying close attention.
