Look Up… Look Way Up

November 12, 2007

Sometimes, I recognize that I’ve had the same point of view for a little too long.  Now, I’m not talking about a prejudice or opinion about something.  I’m talking about just what I’m actually seeing.

I am fortunate to be able to enjoy both the city and the countryside on a regular basis.  We live in the country on many acres of beautiful land.  But, I also get to work within different cities with their different and yet equally interesting visual “candy”.  No matter where we work or live or play, I have found that we can far too often get stuck in looking ahead and only in front of us. 

To combat this, I will force myself from time to time – no matter where I am – to look up… way way up.  And, it is surprising what I’m missing.  I will also look down and be more perceptive as to what is below me.  And, of course, it is also possible to turn around an look at where you’ve just been. 

So, as silly as this may seem or as busy as you may think you are, I would challenge you to look around.  See what you’ve been missing.  It will help to put things in perspective.
