Beauty surrounds us. Not the confected beauty of the fashion magazine or the pop star. But the deep inner beauty of nature, art, words, music, kindness and humanity. The kind that takes your breath away and can give you a spiritual wake-up call. The kind of beauty you can see when you close your eyes, that you feel with your heart, that inspires you to try to imitate it or to lead a better life. 

‘There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.’
Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983)

In a world beset by negativity, fake news and reptilian politics, Patrick Lindsay sees beauty as providing a pathway to illustrate complex ideas, to reshape thoughts and to reimagine problems, issues and their solutions. Beauty encourages calmness and reflection and lifts our spirits. Beauty allows us to look on the bright side, to look at life and our future with optimism and hope.

 “There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.”

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

We feel beauty before we think about it. In FINDING BEAUTY, Patrick Lindsay points out the beauty in our daily lives and prompts us to draw from it to look on the bright side by trusting in our humanity, sparking our imaginations and inspiring ourselves and those around us. 

Each page reminds us that we have the power to take control of our lives, to gather mindful moments, to listen to our heart’s whispers and to bestow kindness freely.

‘Beauty is the promise of happiness.’
Stendahl (Marie-Henri Beyle) (1783-1842) 

FINDING BEAUTYshows that it’s never too late to live the life we’ve always dreamed of or to be the person we’ve always wanted to be.
