Grayscale existence is the most common modern illness.
You can spend your whole life counting the cracks in the sidewalk, while failing to see the sparkle among the rows of panelled glass. In doing so, you will miss the spectacle of cooperation that makes all human endeavours possible. Out here it’s impossibly easier–vision is panoramic. But it is also only temporary.
The secret lies in peripheral vision. It’s the only way to escape the tunnel-vision that modern life often calls for, or what Buddhists might call “The Wheel of Suffering”. The trick is climbing over the chain link fences that surround and mute awareness. It’s not about leaving home. It never has been. The real trick is finding the remarkable inside the familiar.
