The exercise: Stop and become aware of what you’re ignoring.
Look up, listen, feel. We purposely block out so much as a matter of routine, and miss so much of what’s going on around us.
We can’t notice everything all the time, but it’s amazing how much is happening all the time when you open yourself up to take it in.
Here’s a baby Elephant to take with you: Surfaces. In nature, the color and/or texture each surface is the result of erosion and or evolution. In human-made environments, most surfaces are the result of deliberate choice, design, and debate.
Everything we see and touch came to be that way for a reason.
