...everyday beauty

...i was sitting in theater arts in 10th grade, lazily flipping through a spring issue of "town & country" when i saw an ad... i have no idea what they were advertising, but there was this ungodly profusion of delicate ivory blooms elegantly sitting in a massive vase. they were hydrangeas. the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. i couldn't turn the page. that was such a tiny moment in my life, but i haven't forgotten it. i'm tempted to be corny and say that i changed a little that day, but no... i think, rather, that their beauty just awakened something inside of me... being allowed to appreciate something beautiful, wherever you may find it, is a blessing. and if you think about it, there is beauty in everything.
