We Walk By Things

Sometimes we walk by things, and we keep on walking because they are things we have seen a thousand times.

Sometimes we walk by those same things, and for some reason we stop walking. Sometimes, for some reason, these same things seem a little less ordinary and a little more extraordinary, and our minds just have to soak it in and say “Whoa.”

Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, in the very heart of my beautiful little town, is one of those things.
