Do you ever look at a common every day object and see beauty? I often look at something ordinary and see something beautiful about it. It may be the shape, the colors, the wood grain, or a shadow . Here is an example. This is a glimpse of my hamper lid. It is black iron and during certain parts of the day the light causes a wonderful shadow play on the wall behind it. I love the swirls and the varying shades of the shadows. I am reminded of the many decorative gates on homes in San Francisco, California. Many of the homes had either gated courtyards or gated entries. You see a lot of iron gates in the old South, as well. Charleston, SC for instance is made up of very elegant homes with lavish gardens surrounded with decorative fencing and gates.
So see, my hamper takes me to the opposite sides of our country every day. ;D To 2 of my favorite vacation spots. I challenge you to look be still and take in the beauty around you.
