I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Optimism


I didn't notice it when I first took the picture -- this is a building near the Borough Market in London -- but after I'd cropped and tweaked, it had somehow found its way into the center of the shot: a single rose sitting in a water glass.

Someone put a flower in this dingy window to brighten up the desk or storeroom or work table behind it, and that gesture gives me a little hope for the human race in a week in which despair is all too easy. Sometimes even a small sign of grace can have an enormous impact.

Go and make something, anything, a little better today.
