Cicada by Sarah Ritchie

If you look…if you watch…you will see.

Prior to starting this blog, I didn’t really SEE things. Yes, I looked, but it was as if I was looking with half-glazed, uninterested eyes.

Perhaps society encourages us to keep ourselves to ourself. Don’t stare at others. Go from A to B with singular purpose, not leaving enough time to look left and right. Keep yourself too busy to pause and ponder.

If we don’t take the time to stop and see things, how can we learn to appreciate the small things in this world – the detail and the quirks? How can we best know how to help others or affect change if we can’t see what change is required?

If you become a watcher, I guarantee a richness of wonder will begin to spread over your life!
