Beautiful, Impossible Things

IMG_0645Came across this amazing small thing today that someone built in the branch of a tree on the beach. (Click on the photo to see it in detail.) I was surprised at how many people turned away from taking photos of the blue water and the view out to sea to take a photo of this little stack of rocks. If we pay attention, we notice that our lives are full of small, beautiful, impossible, unexpected things. Think of one from your own life , or in the life of your main character, if you are at work on fiction. What was the beautiful thing? An object? Something someone said or didn’t say? The way the light moved? A sound? A color? A feeling or realization? Take a page and describe it in detail. Let us see what YOU see.
