Thursday Thoughts...

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” 

Henry David Thoreau

This captures so perfectly what happens when we slow down and pay attention to the small wonders in the world.  To those moments and places and objects that may appear unattractive and worn, or those which are generally overlooked.

I know I am not alone in thinking of the many photographs I and others take - where I have noticed something small and insignificant, yet beautiful and encouraging or full of wonder.

It's what you can see within it; or what you can see of its story, its history, its value and meaning.


Remnants of string from peace flags past..they are so beautiful to me; so full of reminders of sharing peace.
