Seeing



Dinner on the deck: grilled salmon, grilled potatoes in olive oil, Caesar's salad, and a Chardonnay.  Oh, and a tiny succulent.

Succulents are big this year for some reason.  I see them everywhere.  Maybe they have always been there and I am just now seeing them.  That is the way with most things.  Vision.  It is a complicated process.  The eye sees what it is programmed to see.  It misses most of the rest.

Paying attention to the world is difficult except when we travel, but even then.  I once travelled to Mexico with an architect, a biologist, and a developer.  When we looked out across the landscapes, we all reported on different things.  Shapes, colors, ecotypes, opportunity.

I am still trying to redevelop my vision.  Give me some time.
