Often we rush through our days, heading from one point to the other, deep in thoughts. We keep our eyes glued on what’s in front of us, on the floor, to avoid possible obstacles that might make us trip. We keep going only focused on what lies in the center of our tunnel vision. We forget to look up. We forget to stop and take a moment to see what is there.
In doing so we miss out on a beautiful sky that seems to be on fire, some waves in the clouds that seem to wash over the colorful autumn leaves, a deep blue sky and in contrast to it red leaves. We miss out seeing how the sun tries to get through storm clouds or a heart in the burnt out rest of a tree. We don’t see the face on the moon, the different shades of green of the forest or how a cloud and the sunset turn a mountain in a volcano.
All the magic that surrounds us on a daily base is lost.
So stop! Look up! And see…
