There Are Things You Notice…

15 Apr

…when you leave your busy, your worry, and your hurry behind. There are things you notice when you look forward. Free of expectation, life has a way of lifting secret curtains.

A thousand times. I must have stepped out of my dwelling a thousand times. Yet tonight, for a brief miniature walk, I noticed things. New things.

I noticed a castle across the way. A drawbridge. A moat. And in that moat was a bonsai tree with a most peculiar branch extending like an eager hand reaching for land.

I noticed a boutique. And in this boutique, was either the smartest or the laziest mannequin I have ever known. For this mannequin did not stand on her two feet. Oh no, this mannequin sat its plaster keister on a chair. That’s right, a sitting mannequin. Genius. Who knew?

I didn’t. But I do now.

What do you notice?
