Least Spectacular That

Last month, I posted about Matt, the man who is walking across the country. He just finished up his journey, and had this to say:

There’s beauty everywhere. Keep your eyes open, and keep your
mind open, and you’ll be amazed what’s out there, right under your
nose, just waiting to be discovered. You don’t need to go to the Best This
or the Most Spectacular That; just take a stroll around the neighborhood. I
blindly followed directions from Google on my walk, making no effort to see
anything special, and look at everything I found that I thought needed to be
shared with the world!

Yeah!

I couldn’t agree more.

More than once, I’ve had an experience where I’m in an obscure, out-of-the-way place, or even a completely normal, non-descript place, and suddenly realize how beautiful it is. “No tourist would ever make it a goal to reach this spot,” I’ve thought. “Yet here I stand… so lucky to be here.”
