There is so much beauty in the world, when you look for it, even in the mundane happenings of every normal day.
What if you could turn on a part of your brain that let you see it all?
You’re not just seeing a dirty city street, you’re seeing years of wear on a building being brightly lit by the morning light. Someone peeking out their window with their morning cup of coffee, taking a moment to themselves before the day.
You see a woman riding her bright yellow bicycle to work, framed perfectly by the signs behind her in the diamond district, and beautifully backlit by the sun.
You see a man walking his dog, completely at peace. You imagine you are that man. You empathetically feel that love for a companion, the care and the ritual of walking together each morning.
Today I saw Cham doing her makeup, looking into a small mirror at her features in our well-lit bathroom. There’s an elegance and a charm in the process of a woman putting herself together in a way that she feels confident to represent herself in the world.
I just want to see the beauty amidst the chaos. If I can capture it, maybe I can share it with you. If you see enough of it from me, maybe you’ll start to see it too.
