All we have to do is look for beauty, and it’s there all around us at any given moment.
Beauty speaks to us in soft whispers or bold declarations. It calls on us to gaze in awe at it’s splendor. We are enticed by beauty. We adore her, idolize her, and even court her. Beauty seduces all of our senses. Beauty’s seduction can be as obvious as the striking good looks of a man or woman. The beauty of pride offers us a symphony of colors and reveals to us it’s brash power. This beauty sometimes piques all of our senses at once, appealing to our taste buds, as well as our eyes and nose.
However there are times when this beauty can be cruel, and our pursuit of it can be in vain. We may go to the club in anticipation of finding beauty there, and it may bore and disappoint us. Instead, beauty lavishes it’s attention on another suitor who may be more appreciative of her charms. Or, we may try to capture beauty’s essence in a photograph, painting, or sculpture, and still it is nowhere to be found.
Depending on our personal tastes, the beauty of pride can be found in every color, flavor, scent, and texture. It’s at home in the city, as well as the country, decorating skylines as well as landscapes. It’s the ultimate shape shifter. The beauty of pride is a weather beaten barn beloved by one person and an awesome testament of naval craftsmanship revered by another. Pride beauty knows no bounds, and we can find it everywhere. All we have to do is look for beauty, and there it is with all of it’s pride.
