Thursday Thoughts...

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper” 

W.B. Yeats

The truth well spoken.

Perhaps magical things are also waiting for us to pay attention, to slow down long enough to see them. Perhaps that is the same as heightening or sharpening our senses in a way, but it seems as much to me to be about honouring things by giving them attention as i s  about enhancing our skills.

I think one of the ways artists go through the world is by looking and seeing differently. By seeing beauty in the light, in the shadow, in the old, in the small, in the hidden. Those moments one experiences when a gorgeous trio of birds gather on a wire - two pure black, one pure white.

Taking nothing for granted is another way of discovering magical things isn't it?

I'm not sure what these watch faces are waiting for, something Barry will make with them; but I just thought they looked beautiful sitting there on their stands of sticky tac waiting.  The world is full of beauty and wonder when we stop to look.


  1. Beautiful post, Fiona. And those watch faces are a mesmerizing still life of their own....the stories they could tell. Cheers!
