beauty in the smallest things

So yesterday, while curling up with my sick husband, Mr Faye, I noticed how the golden hour of sunlight creeping in through the gap in the curtains, was lighting up the dust motes, making them sparkle and dance in the air.

It looked something like the photo below (cause I opted to just enjoy the moment instead of chasing after my camera):

 As I was soaking in the beauty of it, I found myself contemplating how magical the world must have seemed before science explained the magic away. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm happy we have science and I'm still awed by the magic of it all even though we understand the how/why of things more now. Because let's face it, just because I know that the dust motes float because [insert the long complicated explanation here that I can't be bothered to type out], it still just seems damn amazing.

After all, the dust is dancing and sparkling in the light, held up and floating on the currents of air and it's magical and and beautiful. You know?

I don't know about the rest of you out there, but sometimes I'm just awed by how amazing the world is, even with the explanations. I mean, let's face it, a rainbow is still fan-fracken-tabulous even if I know it's about light refraction and water in the air. I love the moments when I am reminded by how amazing it all is.

Here's to hoping that your day is also filled with a moment of awe and beauty to celebrate.
