It's a pretty profoundly observant note that you made, AA. Yes, the beauty is all around us. We often are so self-absorbed or consumed that we don't take it in. Every breath is a gift, and every glimpse or perspective is unique within the universe, be it grim or surreal. I am trying to simply observe and treasure it all more, and be a little less critical of things that I find unsettled. Evo's pics are cathartic to me in this perspective. It sounds like they may be to you, as well.
