The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

This photo made me feel happiness.

I used to love getting these as a kid-- my mother would always roll her eyes as I nagged for yet another pinwheel as i got older but never seemed to outgrow them. I always gladly bought them for my kids-- but then they began making these giant ones with little ones around them--like a bouquet of pinwheels--
I prefer the simple pinwheel!
