Scratchpad Scribbles: Beauty in the Ordinary

Every day I take my dog on a walk (usually many walks). It’s supposed to be a break from work and everything else in life. But carrying a computer in your pocket makes it hard to escape. Or rather a lack of willpower makes that hard. So I have been challenging myself to go without using my phone or using my headphones. It has been an eye-opening experience. I can’t believe how much stuff I have missed. I took this picture (broke my phone rule to do it):

I was caught by how interesting this rock ledge is. All the pieces are joined together to create an interesting visual effect. Something ordinary that is beautiful at the same time.

I have walked by this spot every day for the last 6 months and never noticed it until 2 days ago. It was a lesson for me to truly disconnect. To give myself a chance to live in the moment. And find beauty in the ordinary.
