Well, here’s a reoccurring theme on our site. Here at ThingsThatWeDo.com, you know we love to focus on creativity whenever opportunity strikes and today’s post is one of those posts. As you stare at the photo, can you guess why it’s been posted?
When you slow down just long enough and give yourself the freedom to think outside the box, you suddenly make interesting and unique observations that you otherwise wouldn’t have.
Case in point: this otherwise very boring cup of tea.
Like most days, we make tea and coffee. We drink the tea and coffee and the day progresses through its regular chair of events. On this particular day, there’s a comment:
“Hey, check it out.”
Everyone looks at the cup of tea and we all notice the same thing: there’s a face greeting us in the tea! Two little clumps of bubbles and a tea bag, all in the right place at the right time to form an image of a face. We all had a good chuckle, fascinated at how those individual components came together and someone grabbed the camera to take the picture.
Yes, it took a few minutes away from our regular chain of events and maybe it slowed down our routine but it was totally worth it because you see, it’s about more than just that face and it’s actually about more than that one creative moment. It’s about a mutual shared experience as a family unit with laughter and conversation.
Considering the new school year is in full swing, it seems timely to post this reminder to myself, my famly, and to anyone else who might be struggling to establish that new autumn rhythm (which you know is very different than the summer rhythm).
Moments like this bring dialogue, excitement, and a relationship is maintained by simple moments that have been embraced by everyone involved. It doesn’t cost much and it doesn’t even take much time yet look at the benefits.
Now that is a priceless work of art.
