As You See It

In this November season of north Iowa terrain, most of the surroundings have transitioned to shades and tones of brown. But as Chris Orwig says in his book  The Creative Fight, looking at our worlds through a camera lens helps us to slow down, to focus, to look more closely. And that is what I did on the way to the office this morning. A short but slow and intentional trip down a “browned” Mallard Marsh Road  displayed some remaining rich colors, if only visible to the eye that takes time to see. It was worth the detour this morning for me…

As Henry Miller advises: “Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music –the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls, and interesting people.”  Take the time to discover some rich treasures, not just in nature, but in all the things around you, and especially in the people that cross your path.
