Look Closer

The usual seems boring. But the usual isn’t just circumstantial, it’s mental. In other words, some things happening around us are repetitive, but we also have the habit of looking at things in the same old way. Things aren’t as they seem at first glance, nor are they limited to our tunnel vision. Look more closely. Pay attention.

Watching a spider make a web is boring if you treat it as a given. If you choose not to contemplate how amazing it is. If you choose not to see the intricacies of what is actually happening. The fact that the spider even exists is a miracle, let alone that it knows how to make something with such precision and symmetry and for a specific purpose.
