It's a Curse...

Yes, sometimes I think this creative eye of mine is a curse. I can't seem to do much of anything without it noticing something interesting going on. In this case, it wanted to deflect me from my work on the computer by focusing on an ever-changing reflection along the edge of the monitor. I'd opened the vertical blinds on the window behind the computer station, and it was the slats slowly waving back and forth being reflected and distorted by that shiny black plastic edge. That's fine and well, I guess, that my eye would say, hey look! And take some pics too. But then it refuses to follow up by even hinting how I might use what it's just made me take notice of. It's a curse, I say!

Sheila, that is so funny. I was distracted here one day by the waving of a pine tree branch. When it moved back and forth a peek of yellow color from the birch tree behind it shone through. It was beautiful and I kept looking up to catch a glimpse. Didn't get much sewing done that day.

Now the birch leaves are gone so nothing but green color now.

You're tripping.

That's just plane "Cu-el!" And the fact that they changed and kept your attention. Kind of like a little meditation right there at work! Good eye--It's a gift to be able to see these things. Thanks for sharing the magic in the mundane!
