There is beauty in all of life. While others see content or facts, I see form, color and composition. When I see a flower I can see how the light is playing off the petals or how the dew settles in the crook of a leaf. When I see a pile of items that have been discarded, I see the potential in what it can become with its beautiful lines and not that it is something that is broken beyond repair. Life is about seeing the wonder and beauty in all things.
