Do you ever notice things you never noticed before?

So, today I was taking a walk something I have been doing almost every day since the weather has been a bit better..anyway, I always walk the same roads. The road is surrounded by woods on one side and tall grass on the other, with woods a bit further down. Anyway, today I noticed a charred tree trunk sitting right on the edge of the woods. I was wondering...has that been here the whole time? I never noticed it before. I walked over to it to see if evidence of a fire was anywhere else...but no..I guess the charred trunk must have been there before I just never noticed. Does that happen to you where you suddenly notice something you haven't seen before?

Yes. Usually when I lost something and I need to find it. I get to see many stuff I do not really bother to notice before or maybe I did but not give too much attention.

Yes, sometimes if you don't have a reason to notice something you don.'t.

Yes, it happened to me many times. There are so many things to watch around, sometimes we don't see something that is right in front of us.

maybe we need to widen our peripheral vision so we can see what is already there but we did not see it before.

I find when we drive to our nearest town, which we do at least once a week, I always look at the same side of the road meaning I might look to the left where my friend keeps her horses then to the right where the apple trees are blooming, back to the left a bit further on, etc. Sometimes I deliberately try to do the opposite and it is surprising the stuff I see that I hadn't really noticed before.

That sometimes happens to me, sometimes you just get so involved in one thing you don't really take the time to look around. Its why I like to watch movies twice, I always see something the second time around that I didn't notice the first time.

I frequently start watching a movie..and like half way through I realize I had seen it before.

Sometimes we don't see what is in front of our eyes. Or we take for granted the familiar.

I think sometimes unless we have a reason to notice some things we don't!

Ya... Sometimes I start to think deeply about it, the thing which existed from a long time but I noticed them today
