I think it is my inner photographer or artist that responds to the aesthetic beauty of random moments. Often something will strike me as interesting and I will mull over it for some time. Usually it’s words, but sometime it is just random images or situations I happen upon in the course of my day.
Let me explain.
I was sitting in traffic (in my car I might add) idly looking out my window and happened to see two completely random individuals who appeared to have consulted each other that morning in the manner of their dress for the day.
Both male, of similar stature and both wearing dark pants, sky blue business shirt and navy tie. Could have been twins… But weren’t. One was exiting his driveway as if to come across the road and patronise the nearby service station, the other walking towards him at a right angle (for what it is worth) each was oblivious of the other.
I am fairly sure I was the only one who observed this particular moment and it has been rattling around in my mind since, it has actually been over a week since this incident occurred.
I guess the impact it has had on me is a speculation that there is so much more to see than the particulars of a situation. The cosmic ballet of creatures going about their daily lives outside of consultation with others all creating patterns and pictures that only someone above or distanced from the action actually sees. Even if they have no relationship with each other they are related by the end result the image, the product of their movement, industry or breath.
Yep. More to life than meets the eye…
