Seeing More








Have you ever noticed that the longer you look at something, the more of it you see? If you truly focus on something you begin to see the layers that comprise it, the infinite details and nuances. The textures, patterns, the various hues and shades in the coloring, things about it that you never quite noticed before when you glanced or weren't really paying close attention.

Quite often I just examine something closely... a Flower... a Butterfly... a piece of vintage fabric or wearable Art... a favorite picture, print or painting... patterns on China... favorite pieces of Jewelry... the color in my Grandchildren's eyes. It's all quite beautiful and amazing in the complexity of it all when you gaze and stare deeply at something, into something, taking it all in, losing yourself in what your eyes are absorbing... seeing more. Realizing that the longer we look at anything, the more of it we truly see. Go ahead, take a look... a close look... a long look... linger a while and spend time observing and appreciating... seeing more... Dawn... The Bohemian
