Stop and smell the flowers

May 11, 2016 - 3:23pm
Most of the students are gone, the caps and gowns put away, the classrooms locked up and the residence halls are empty. Except for some summer courses, the academic year is over. My walk to my office is quiet and empty. After all the hectic activity of the school year, everything has slowed down. Everything, that is, except me. I found myself hurrying toward my building from the parking ramp thinking of all the things I had to do and then, WHAM - the most heavenly scent stopped me. A tree in full bloom wove its scent around me, whispering for me to stop and smell the flowers. So even though I was running late (again), I did. I stopped and breathed in deeply, forcing my mind to stop racing and live in the moment. I pulled a flower closer to my face to take in more of the intoxicating scent. I thought about how fleeting the seasons can be if we don't occasionally stop to truly enjoy them. Life doesn't stop for you, so you have to stop for it. And wow - does this campus have reasons to stop and smell the flowers. It's like some crazy color explosion hit just about everywhere you look. But you have to look. You have to slow down and look before it passes you by. If you're on campus, get out and take a walk. If you haven't been here lately, come back. This beautiful place is like a huge park with gardens everywhere you look. Wander through Horticulture Gardens, one of the most beautiful "laboratories" you'll ever visit. Stroll around the W. J. Beal Botanical Garden, the oldest continuously operated university garden of its kind in the United States.
