A wondrous thing in the world:

A most wondrous ability is the turning of an ugly, plain, dysfunctional or horrific thing into something wondrous and beautiful:

It may be a piece of clay into a sculpture,
a gargoyle into something looking angelic,
words into a love sonnet,
dull dry pigment into a glossy painting,
a damaging thought into a loving one,
greed into giving,
self hate into self love,
an unloved expression into a loved expression,
pain into peace,
sorrow into joy,
tears to laughter....

have You tried to create beauty in the world around you?
