Contemplative Monday

I am reading a book by Karen Maezen Miller called 'hand wash cold'. In the prologue she writes a few lines that I feel deserve some  contemplation:

"With only a change in one's perspective, the most ordinary things take on inexpressible beauty."

"When we don't know, we don't judge. And when we don't judge, we see things in a different light."

"That's why I wrote this book. To atone for the messes I've made, to see the wisdom I've overlooked, to offer the care I've left undone, to show both you and me the inexpressible beauty that's comes tucked inside an ordinary life."
