I was walking home on Sunday and I was really appalled by the horrible disintegration of our roads. On many streets, the tar has split and the potholes look like the hollows of sunken eyes. Some potholes are even bigger than a wash basin and make me worry about the safety of drivers, particularly during this rainy season.
I was walking along, feeling despondent about this, when suddenly, I came across something along the gravelly tar I thought to be extraordinarily beautiful; a lone red bloom lying regally on the ragged road. It seemed to be whispering, “For all the ugliness that you will encounter, there is beauty to contrast it.”
It’s Wednesday and we are half-way through the week now. What can your beauty do to counter the world’s ugliness today? Have a happy Wednesday!
