what do you see when you look around you?
what do you focus on?
every day the possibility of beauty exists.
it’s easy to hold yourself closed,
to create clear boundaries between yourself
and the world that is standing inches from your face,
to avoid eye contact. you look out the window
at the same sights every day. but what if
it’s all about the way you look at things?
you never know what you’ll encounter
along the way.
take a moment. open your eyes.
look up. look around. really look.
be here now. present to your location.
in the midst of this moving reality.
this now and now and now.
*here, i hope to share the beauty i encounter as a regular practice of training my eyes to see.
