Slicing has made me look at my world differently. I am noticing beauty around me. I must say beauty in my eyes or beauty when I do not have the full story.
On my leaving D, after a visit to his boarding school yesterday, I noticed trees in the distance that looked amazing. The trees were decorated with white birds.
I shared a slice with a photograph on day 17 and one of the comments was a slicer wondering the type of birds that live in the trees of the photo. I guess this comment has been at the back of my mind and resurfaced when I saw this phenomenal view.
We drove past it quickly and I thought to myself, I will take a photograph of this extraordinary view the next time I visit. Then I remembered I could ask D to take a photograph of the view and send it to me. So I did.
Inspired by mschiubookawrites’s slice from day 24, when she shared how PaperbackEd’s slice had inspired her, I will attach my mobile communication with D.
D found the request hilarious. I guess the students regard the birds a nuisance.
So I did. I had to clarify what I had been told. So I carried out some research.
I was wanderings why the egrets congregated in that particular area.
D told me later that there is a swamp very close to the trees, the students walk that way for classes every morning, I guess that answers my question.
What I found beautiful from a distance is detested by others, people living close by.
