Take a Step Back to Really See

Went on my first "real" vacation in a long time, it was a family trip to see my Niece graduate from college in Utah. While I was there, we went to a really cool museum called The Leonardo, as in Leonardo Da Vinci, the great inventor and artist.

Everything was very interactive and you could touch things which made it really fun for me. My favorite area was on the first floor, an area called Spark! Ignite Creativity. The people who created the exhibits were asked " How would you make the world a better place?"

So, there were things like a wishing tree where you could write a wish and attach it to the tree or you could fold an origami crane.

Visitors are asked the question "What will you make possible?" In one area, there were pieces of cardboard and markers. You could decorate a piece to add to the "Love Wall" So fun, so cool!

Off to the side was this message which sums up all the little pieces of cardboard art.

Because I was so busy looking at the individual pieces of art and just the whole set up, I didn't notice what the art on the wall said until I decided I wanted one picture of the wall. I saw it later when I was going through my photos. It said...

That is why I say, sometimes we just need to step back a little to take in the whole picture and get the real message.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have an awesome weekend!
