"open my eyes that I may see..."
one afternoon i changed the settings on my camera and began to photograph things in my room that i see every day. i like how the blinds and fan ended up looking mysterious and dreamy.
one of the benefits of noticing is you begin to foster a deep gratefulness for what you've been given. i would have very much liked to have a fan in russia. (it is very humid in the st petersburg area in the summer...ah, but it is also sooo green!)
another benefit is sometimes you see a shooting star like i did on my run last night. wonderful! :)
draw, sketch, paint, photograph, write about an object you encounter daily.
