To Fall In Love With a Parking Lot

Look at something boring for long enough, and you will fall in love with it. If you haven't done this for a while, you are too busy being a grown up.

I went to the Louvre twice, but I never saw the Mona Lisa because it was covered with people. I do remember one of the guards though. He was fascinating.

Some people need to see something great to get inspired. Me, I don’t care for monuments. I get inspired by the little things.

3 days ago, I found myself staring at a parking lot. It was wet and covered with brown fallen leaves at the corners. It had 2 cars, one was old, the other new. It was beautiful, but I think you had to be there.

Everything has a story. All you have to do is find it. Look at something boring for long enough, and you will fall in love with it.
If you haven’t done this for a while, you are too busy being a grown up.

So –

Go out and find a stupid fence of something. Stare at it like it was the freakin’ Mona Lisa.

You will find that your own street is more beautiful than the most beautiful art gallery you’ve ever seen. Even if it’s butt-ugly. Especially if it’s butt-ugly.
