The Details

The Beauty is in the Seeing


The experience of really seeing instead of just looking can often be magnified when you focus on a part of the whole. When you drive by a tree, for example, you get to see the tree. But try slowing down and walk by it. It is different. You get to smell it, see the textures, notice the play of light and maybe discover some drama even in the ordinary.


This narrowing of sight can bring some new surprises into what has been there all along. It's like the game of "Hide and Seek". For me, the details don't need to be macro. Isolation of view is a relative thing.
