Symmetry is what we see at a glance.  - Blaise Pascal Focus:  Texture/Pattern I wandered around Washington Park today, completely uninspired by anything;  January blahs for sure.  As often happens when I'm bored, I found myself focusing on the details, rather than my environment itself.  Beauty really can be found in the most mundane objects. ...
