Beauty Spots – spotted in city, park, square and pavement
Beauty spots – in the city, spots against your expectations: wild water forms and nature
spots, calling upon your eyes and mind – see what lies before you – and calling your
attention like oases, breathing spaces, opportunities for expansion, to stretch out and
reach somewhere that leads from here to fertile land for imagination, to think again, to
reach elsewhere, further, beyond the usual rhythm that you are used to: find another,
different voice! With open eyes look at forms and shapes that emerge around you!
Discover things when looking at it from different angles, find your own perspectives on
things! Look at the sky above you, the pavement beside you, find the aesthetics of the
moment, the hidden wonders of what develops with the light effect of the sun and the
shadows it makes and spreads across the ground. Look out for light-streams, reflections,
inversions, additions, for there is magic in how things appear!
Beauty spots arise in any moment, so walk carefully, mindfully, optimistically, stop
frequently, it’s all there, unfolding, ever in motion in every place, at any time and space
happening – blissfully, peacefully, fantastically – among the elements.
