When I am talking with someone, there will come a point in the conversation when they light up. They have this energy, this life that flows from them. It’s fleeting. But it’s the moment when I fall in love with them. I see how beautiful they are, how amazing and wonderful, and I want to show it to everyone.
When I’m walking through a space that I pass through every day, or sometimes for the first time, a detail will jump out at me. It can be the vast emptiness of a space that is physically small. It can be the angle of looking down a flight of stairs that has turned into a swirl of color and pattern. It can be anything. But it’s just there, just at that moment, that angle. I want to pull people aside and say, “Stand HERE. LOOK at this!” I want to frame that exact moment and place.
I want to show everyone. And I want to remember it.
There is so much beauty in the world, in everyday things. We just have to look.
I have to look.
