Look up and Look Around
It is so easy to become focused on work, and life, and things that need to be done, that I fail to notice where I am and what is happening around me. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago. I drove into the city on Saturday morning to meet and old friend for breakfast. I realized that it was the first time I driven into the City in five months. Driving into the City, I saw things I don't see on my daily commute. Once my commute enters the city, it is underground, I don't see anything between the Potomac and popping up in front of our office building. Even walking from home to the subway, I walked by within 25 feet of two of the three deer one morning recently and didn't notice them, until I heard them moving. It is not that I am looking down mesmerized by my phone. Though I do miss things on the metro when I am reading my Kindle. I just zone into getting to and fro and miss what is around me.
So, the reminder to myself, look up, look around, see and experience the world. I never know what I am going to see, what adventure is in front of me.
What surprising thing did you see this week?
