Observe Today



We go through our daily lives with so many tasks cluttering our minds. The little details and poetry of the world around us is often absorbed temporarily, and almost immediately lost. Observe Today is a project in which I prompted others to look back on their day and remember something they observed, noticed, or admired. I invited them to describe it in a letter. The letters I collected have been put here for you to read. I hope reading these letters invites people to be mindful of the world we live in, and the beauty that lies in our everyday lives. I believe mindfulness and observation are key to overall happiness.
Look at the bend in your blinds. Look at the way your shoelaces curl. Smile back at your bus driver. Touch the small creases on your palms.
Live everything and observe today.
