Ugly Beautiful

Today I drove to Sacramento for work. I drive from my house up Highway 5, not a pretty drive, but sometimes prettier than others.

Today's ride showed me ugly.

A man under a truck on the side of the road. Dead and covered by yellow tarp - all except his bald head.

Today's ride also showed me beauty.

Not far from the yellow tarp was an open field full of white egrets.

It reminded me of the thin line the exists between ugly and beauty. How I look at the world around me and I am brought to tears at the ugliness of this world and in the next moment I am amazed at the beauty that surrounds us all if we just look.
