Twisted Angel

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This hunk of metal is part of the ruins at Ariel Foundation Park which uses metal girders recovered from a former glass plant on this site to create art. Those girders were recovered one other time – from the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.

They’re all different. I think this one looks like an angel.

Most people would probably just walk past this twisted hunk of metal without a second thought but I was fascinated with the shape and patina of it.

As you wander through this world, remember this:

You see what you seek. If you’re looking for a white car, you will only see white cars. If you’re looking for the bad, that’s what you’ll find.

If you’re looking for beauty, even a hundred and thirty year old steel girder against a blue sky will become a spectacular piece of abstract art. It may be the most beautiful thing you see that day.

Never stop looking for the good, friends. Even on the bad days. Your life will be better for it.
