My iTunes: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Movement II by Mozart
This is one of my favorite pictures. I can't really pin point why I like it so much. When I took it, it didn't really grab me as anything special. But the more I look at it, the more I'm inspired to look and reflect.
It's rather like a visual metaphor:
Life is a path, and you can't always see where you're headed. You just see pieces of the journey, and when you look at things up close, it might not even look like you're going anywhere, or that you're even on a path. It's tempting to keep your eyes down and just watch your feet as you walk, but if you look up you see the beauty all around.
But at the same time, it's the imperfections of the path that make it unique and almost beautiful in itself. If it were clean and sterile, it would be boring and lack luster. Each twist and turn, each crack and cranny adds a little spice. When you take time to stop and smell the roses, you see that each and every part of the journey is different and unique.
So, get out there and enjoy life. Every little bit of it.
