Spread 107 – Transformative

It was a particularly bad day at my particular work. Completely computer related and out of our control. I just came home and jumped in my pool, the cool water helped me to let it all go far away. I lay there floating for a long time. On my back. And there it was that particularly boring, ugly telephone pole I can not stand. It has always soiled my view and peacefulness of my private paradise. I was looking at it there, just the pole and me and the sky floating. And it was transformed. Beautiful.
