If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.
George Eliot (b. Mary Anne Evans, 1819-1880) novelist, humanist & freethinker

George Eliot moves me in so many ways not the least of which is her beautiful way with words.

That is a fabulous squirrel.

Hmmmmm... I don't know if I agree with Ms. Evans. I think I have a fairly receptive eye for the ordinary, and so far I haven't been deafened (or blinded). I don't think it's as much a matter of volume as it is one of filtering out the clutter to focus in on the subject, sort of like the hearing aids that filter out the static to let the pure sound through.

Egad! Did I just get philosophical? Pardon me while I go back to hiding behind my camera.

Paintings on city walls are so much fun to find. This squirrel is very large but the more fun to see from far away.
