Pride

BE PROUD

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

Something has occurred to me just now and I have noticed it before but I’ve never put it into words and it’s that when you’re looking at something close up your focus on things far away becomes blurred and vice versa. And the real … I don’t know what … the real revelation in that observation is that this is true not just when you’re looking out the window at the trees dancing in the wind but also in your life.

If you’re looking at the details you can’t see the big picture and if you’re looking at the big picture you can’t see the details.

I wonder why that is. Is it possible to develop multi-focus where you can see everything with an equal amount of clarity?

  • Listening to: The wind blow.
  • Watching: The trees dance in the wind.
  • Eating: Fresh baked part-baked bread and grapes.
  • Drinking: Fizzy water
