"It's not what you look at that matters,
it's what you see."
Henry David Thoreau
That simple, every day moment.
I gather my lunch and my purse, check the cell, pick up the keys and walk out the door.
Down the four side steps, across the the driveway... I head for the car.
The day is in full swing.
Skies are clear, the air is crisp and the sun warms me with its glow,
even if I can't feel its heat.
These are some of the most ordinary of moments.
I take the same few steps,
look at the same white fence, the leafless bushes and the old black car....just about every day.
Yesterday, my oh-so-ordinary steps were interrupted by the
stunning, artistic display of frost on the roof of my car!
There it was, catching the morning rays.
Gatsby-like, art deco fan patterns.
All waiting to greet me,
to remind me not just to look....
but to really see.
