Is there a Japanese or German word that describes that moment in which you look at something you see every day but in a different light, and you suddenly find it beautiful?

@arturovm interesting question, do you know a word in a different language for this?

@mohs8421 No! Haha. It's just, you know, both Japanese and German seem to have words for everything :P

@arturovm It sounds as though it would be adjacent to mono no aware, awareness of the impermanence of things (and attendant wistfulness) but I don't think that's quite the concept you're looking for.
