Seeing is a very important part of my job — and not just seeing with my eyes, but my heart and mind as well. This quote resonates with me because it reminds me how important it is to look at things closely — and with AWE — in order to truly “see” what you are looking at. So many times, beauty and inspiration are all around us, but we are so busy whizzing by on our way to somewhere else that we miss what is right in front of us. It is a state derived of our culture. The good news is, we can break the cycle — maybe not everyday, but at least every once in a while if we stop and “see”— make it a conscious effort and soon it will become your nature (again)!
This photo was taken in Morro Bay, California. My visit there was a side adventure on a business trip. Although I wouldn’t trade my precious prairie or my lovely woods for an ocean view, I do love to watch the tide.
