WE CHOOSE to appreciate that which is colorful, flamboyant, astonishing, and outstanding.
But I also find beauty in things that are simple, plain, commonplace, and unassuming. Such are those clusters of white flowers that abound in the mountainsides of Matutum. They are ordinary at first glance, but they are lovely if only you spend some time to notice them.
Most people tend to value people for their superficial characteristics. Most of us would adore those who have dazzling characteristics and personalities and we usually fail to notice those who appear ordinary.
Sometimes we have to take a closer look at people to appreciate their hidden beauty.
