If you're a shopper, you probably have a lot of shoes. If you're female, you probably have a lot of shoes. If you're into athletics (runner? soccer player?), you probably have a lot of shoes. Whether you buy high end or Payless brand, if you're American you have a closetful of shoes. It's a thing with us. Ain't it great to be an American?
What do you notice when you meet someone for the first time? Some pay attention to a person's sense of style — things like clothes, shoes or hair. Others notice physical attributes like a dazzling smile or shimmering eyes. And some even recognize personality traits like kindness or confidence.

It is only because of light encountering an object that we are able to see it. And when we do see that wall or chair or art, it should make us smile. Or, better yet, take our breath away.
