The Absolute Beauty in Everyday's Mundanity

I know I started this list on such a MOOD. The random moments of your trivial life can really be beautiful, transcendental, melancholic or terrifying, with each second passing by seems ultimately trivial but nevertheless revelatory and yet somehow you never seem to stop for a second to appreciate them. This is my favorite subgenre, no doubt. Lo-fi music in the back, a hot cup of coffee on the table. Find your peace, everybody.

Do you have anything to add?
