Tonight as I was making dinner, I dug around in the refrigerator looking for some sour cream. The open tub was nearly empty, so I located the new container and pulled it out as well.
As I took the lid off of the fresh sour cream, I was surprised by the image on the safety foil lining:
What a great way to use potentially ‘wasted’ space! Granted, ultimately this image is tied to an advertisement (on the back of the foil the company makes a claim about the product being 100% natural…):
Still, encountering a pretty picture in an unexpected place was a very pleasant experience for me!
P.S. This little experience also got me thinking: What other opportunities exist to infuse art, nature, or compassion into ‘surprise’ places in an otherwise ordinary life?
