Things Aren’t Always What They Seem

Today, I’m sharing something that I think is pretty amazing.

Last week, my friend, Sindee, posted this photo on her Facebook page with the caption: “Saw this beautiful watercolor on Friday. Notice the stairs and the sun shining.”

When I shared the picture with Marshall, he texted in return: “I see a meadow, with an old stone stair climbing up the left, flowers in the foreground, with a very clear sky above.  Very, very odd.  Perhaps even a little pond at the base of the stairs.”

A few minutes after the first post, Sindee shared THIS picture, with the caption: “OK, maybe it was just my imagination. Nature’s watercolor!  A piling at the JRB (James River Bridge)”. Sindee and her husband had been out in their boat enjoying an unseasonably warm November day.

I find it fascinating that, first of all, there is such beauty to be found on pilings….simply markings created by the endless rising and falling of the tide.  And secondly, I’m thankful that Sindee realized that beauty and captured it in pictures. (And allowed me to share with you.)

Marshall noticed a similar landscape on the piling in the background and thought it would be fun to create a little book with the photos.  At the end of the book, the source of the pictures would be revealed. Sindee said her husband had the same thought.

Sindee’s photo is a wonderful reminder to look for magic in even the most unsuspecting places.
