Are you the one stopped on the sidewalk, staring up into the branches of a tree, looking for the bird that you can hear? And when you see it’s a Cardinal – up above the thick canopy of neon green maple leaves, bright red against the blue sky – you can’t believe how beautiful it is… Is that you? And you can’t believe how hidden it is in plain sight. The rush of school kids. The dog walkers. The late-for-workers and blue bin trawlers. They’re all pushing past, oblivious. Do you want to grab them, stop them, and say:
Look! Right up there! There’s a beautiful, beautiful thing!
