Alabaster and Mahogany
you look, what do you see?
steps, one for each decade, climbing up a rocky, uneven surface?
Do you see what is above that? You have a window that shows a
large world to make of as you want it.
from the other side, what is there? A spiral taking you around
and inward. Okay, you can stay on the edge if you want or go on
in and see what's there. Every time you go in, I'll bet you see
something that you missed before. Or maybe you're just looking
from a different perspective.
how about the outside? For the most part, if you run your hands
over it, it's smooth. Oh, there are a few bumps here and there,
but even so, remember, it's just the surface. What's below that?
Do you see the scars? How about the structure and faults running
deeply below the surface? Those aren't scars or faults - they
are the characteristics below the surface that give it character...make
it unique. They make you take notice and see what is beneath the
shiny surface to what is real...the true beauty.
Keep looking below the surface. Make it
a habit to change perspectives...
