I would have never thought that auroras – which I imagined were mostly green – only appear as green when we view them with our eyes at night. Change the viewing instruments and all sorts of colours come out! How amazing is that! Look at these beautiful photos.
This reminded me that sometimes we need to remember that what we see and how we see it is only in our heads, and it’s in our power to change both how we view and how we feel about any given situation.
Also in our quest for new, unusual, amazing discoveries, travel is an obvious way of finding them. Yet change of perspective, revisiting, remixing the things and experiences already around us, for a true nomad can have a very similar effect.
Today or tomorrow, find the most mundane thing that you can see, and uncover its hidden colours – make it become amazing and new and beautiful through either a change of angle with which you view it or the way you think about it.
