Finding Balance Through Beauty

I noticed the small gesture of love and beauty in the above photo as I was waiting to catch an uber yesterday. The circle of hearts crocheted to the tree contained the following note:

Simple instructions with a powerful message.

Artistic gestures such as this can play a huge role in helping us find balance in our stressful world. As you go into the weekend, I’m curious to know what artistic gestures you have seen that provide beauty and balance in your life?

I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below.  Have a great weekend.
