Look Up and be amazed

I recently read an article about choosing to be amazed at things that happen every day and how important that is for us as we live an authentic life and it got me thinking about 2 things. One was look up and the second was about being amazed. In case you are interested here is a link to the article https://flyingedna.com/blogs/news/be-amazed?mc_cid=70b6a9de95&mc_eid=13a1c9dec9

When I first started travelling overseas I went to New York City and fell in love with its beauty and energy. I love how NYC is alive, there is so much to see and do there that you can never do it all. Every time I go back I see something new. I learnt an important lesson there that has stayed with me ever since, that is to ‘Look Up’ you see New York is amazing at ground level but there is incredible beauty above your heads if you look up. Wandering around NYC you get the feel of “Gotham City” the incredible Art Deco buildings at ground level are topped with amazing edifices . There is detail in ornamentation aka gargoyles, incredible brickwork patterns, statues etc. Below some photos

The truly breathtaking and amazing event for me was the first time I went to Yosemite NP, in the summer of 1995. I have been a number of times since the last was January 2011. Nothing can compare to the first time you see the vista of Yosemite valley after driving through the tunnel. That is a WOW moment. In case you haven’t been there below some photos from a trip Jan 2011.
