My eyes wander down to the country road I'm walking on.
I can tell it had been tarred and graveled not too long ago.
There apparently hasn't been a lot of traffic to press all of the tiny stones into the tar yet, which would have given the road a "paved" look and feel.
Instead, I feel the rolling movement of gravel pieces beneath my feet with each step.
They make a click-crunching sound as I walk over them.
Every once in awhile, one of my steps inadvertently sends a little stone bouncing and skipping on ahead of me.
I think of the absolute contentment I feel strolling down this peaceful country road... and how easy it is to notice and appreciate even the simple things on such a beautiful day like today.
