One more thing can help or it can hurt. One more card in Blackjack or one more block in Jenga can be the difference between winning and losing.

I walked by this spot a dozen times but until I saw it in the rain, I never noticed how the lines intersected and the elements blended.
Nothing about the component parts changed physically from my previous walk-bys. But thanks to the rain, the surface was transformed.
Yesterday’s jumbled road materials suddenly became today’s study in color and composition.
All thanks to that one more thing.
