What do you see? Forget about what the clues mean, right now just notice what you see.

For February I'm going to be exploring observation.

Observation is of course at the core of thinking like Sherlock Holmes. What makes Holmes different? In the Blanched Soldier Holmes tells Watson: "I see no more than you, but I have trained myself to notice what I see."

The true goal of observation is to become not only more observant of your surroundings (so that you see more) but also more mindful of your surroundings (so that you notice the meaning of what you see).

Take the picture below. If you were asked to describe it, maybe you would just say: "it's a sidewalk with some trees." But there's so many other things to see and know from it, and you can see these pretty plainly if you take a step back and become mindful of them.

Did you notice the color of the leaves? This picture was taken in autumn. Did you notice how well kept and new the pavement and grass is? How about the sign directing people to different parts of the complex in the distance?

The complex itself is large, has an overpass for walking or a monorail, there are large trucks in front of the complex, and if you zoom in you can see people milling around too. I'd guess that it's an airport.

You'd have to zoom in to see this, but the flag on the flagpole in the top right hand corner seems foreign to America. This could be a foreign country or state. Judging by the style of the complex, roads, and cars I'd guess that it's somewhere else in the western world.

All of this is fairly simple, you just have to take the time to be mindful about what you see. What can you see around you in your everyday life?
