But once in a while, there’s this impulse to actually look at the things that we see all the time — to look at the things right in front of us.
We should follow that impulse. It’s a pathway to beauty.
Look at how the corner of your page has curled. Look at the little specks of dust that have gathered on your monitor like a constellation of tiny grey stars. Look at the people you’re sheltering at home with. Look at their smile. Look at the way they look when they’re just existing. If you’re alone right now, Facetime a friend and look at their face — they won’t notice, they’ll be looking at your face.
There is beauty in every detail if we look closely enough.
