Today, I noticed the way that grass lies in a field. I observed how only the taller grasses are shifted by the wind. I noticed how quiet the outdoors can be. I saw that the butterflies like to zig and zag consistently as they take flight. I noticed how a bead of perspiration joins another bead - until it joins to form a drop of sweat that moves down the skin - from the force of gravity. I noticed how high a bird can fly in the sky, really quite high. I observed how a jet flying high in the air can pass by leaving no evidence that it was ever there. Yet at times it might toss a cloud aside and cause it to create a new strand of cloud stuff. I noticed how regular and consistent it is - this constant flow of traffic - of people driving their cars going from here to there - non-stop.
