Stop & Look Around…

On a day where drab and rain highlighted Los Angeles, I grabbed my camera and stepped outside my house to see what I could find.  I had no idea that in all the wet and gray I would discover such rich color and design.  I photographed the bark on the street-lined tree in front of my house and found this.  It got me to thinking about how there is color, design and beauty everywhere if we just try and find it.  Life never stops surprising me.  I realize that we all get caught up in the daily to-do’s and stresses and sometimes lose sight of all the amazing things in each and every one of our lives.   Add to that, just as this year has flown by, time seems to be moving faster and moments become more and more fleeting.  It reminds me of something Matthew Broderick’s character, Ferris Bueller, said in the same-titled film, “Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”  So even on soggy, grey, gloomy day like today, stop and look around.
