Recently I asked you this question and presented you with a picture of a stick, and a second picture of litter. We talked a bit about how when people first see the stick, they see a stick, if they see it at all. A stick on the ground first looks like a fang, a tooth or perhaps a weapon of some kind. The litter looked like the jawbone of a massive sea creature.
But this time when I ask the question, I am going a level higher. I walk the streets of the city where I work during the day quite often. I see all kinds of things as I wander about. Some mundane, some unusual and some beautiful.
What I see the most is people rushing from here to there without ever noticing the path. I am sure they all have very important places to go, things to do, and people to see, but they miss so much on the way there. Like the picture at the beginning of this post. I took that on a bridge in my town. I wonder how many people walk right by it and never see the googly eyes watching them?
What else are they missing? Or perhaps I should ask, what are you missing?
The world is a wondrous place. There are amazing things around us all the time. Whether I walk through a poor neighborhood or a rich one, there are always things to see and hear. I encourage, spend more time looking around and listening. You may just find your next adventure before you even finish your first few steps.
