New Eyes

I drive by the same place every day and have for 13 years - an industrial complex surrounded by oil tanks, broken down buildings and garbage. I have always thought of it as just an ugly dirty industrial park. I've never given it much thought other than the days that it has a distinct odor.

Today as I drove past the sun was just starting to rise and there was a beautiful pink and purple hue to the sky. As I looked off to the left I saw a completely different scene. The broken windows were reflecting these gorgeous colors, the lights were reflecting in the water and everything was glistening. It looked as magical as the NY skyline can look.

Sometimes we just need to look at things with new eyes to find the beauty,
