Above and Below
This time last week - I was sitting in a cafe in Bologna, Italy.
It was one of the cafes facing a great plaza - called Piazza Maggiore - filled with people.
I had a rare stretch of time where I just sat soaking in the scenery. Eventually, I looked up. There above me was a stunning ceiling. You'll see the photo I snapped with my iPhone. To me, it looks more like a painting than a photo! How many people pass beneath it without looking up and marveling?
I then looked down and snapped a photo of the ground. Big granite slabs polished smooth. The textured stone reflecting the sun made the stone seem alive.
I am inspired to keep looking up, looking down, - savoring the hidden treasures hiding beneath our feet and above our heads.
