Sometimes Less Is More

If you’re like me, then when you take walks, you might fail to notice the billboard but you notice nature around you. In the concrete city that New York is, you have to take the glimpses of nature when you get them. But sometimes less is more.

The beauty of a single flower

Notice how when the single dandelion flower emerges from the sidewalk, it captures your attention and you’re forced to pause and appreciate its beauty?

Beauty gets muddled by everything else

And then, notice how just a few steps away, there are more flowers than you can see without moving your head sideways, and that you tend not to notice the beauty anymore. In fact, the beauty of a crowd of flowers is so UNappreciated, that people extinguish their cigarette butts next to the plants and empty the garbage from their pockets with nary a thought.

Sometimes less is more!

Hope you’re having a great weekend and that you get to enjoy a little bit of nature while you’re at it.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts as well.
