Stopping to See

"What we see depends mainly on what we look for. ... In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the coloring, sportmen the cover for a game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not follow that we should see them."

- John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and The Wonders of the World We Live In

Take the time today to look at something differently than you would have before. Or perhaps, more importantly, take the time to look today. Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are things we pass up on seeing simply because we are too busy.

Have a fantastic Monday!
