Observations from my office window

Staring thoughtfully (note not idly) out the window this morning and contemplating my lot in the universe over a steaming mug of tea, a creamy appendage caught my eye. Our offices have a little balcony that overlooks one of the parking lots and after much twisting and jiggling the door gave way and I was able to view it in more detail. Normally a rather dull brown, a mundane palm seed frond had morphed into a quirky piece of art.

    

A little later in the day, the changing light gave it a slightly different look ………

    

“The secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life, and in elevating them to art.”

  1. You are so right. There is beauty all around us. I have seen those fronds on palm trees around here and always think they look like a human head of hair. But when you see the detail on them in your photo they are actually quite delicate. Lovely.
