What I see are a bunch of pretty little flowers. What I know is that entire stalk was as big as my thumb.
If you cannot do great things,
do small things in a great way.
– Napoleon Hill
What I see is a recessed ceiling alcove with little circular windows surrounding a chandelier that hangs at the top of a circular staircase. What I think is this view is disorienting!
presupposes a disorientation.
– Hans Magnus Enzensberg
What I see is a Water Lily bud. What I remember is it was open and huge and lovely when I first saw it, but then it was all sealed up when I went out later. What I think is we all have times when we need to close back in upon ourselves, rest – tap into the light within, so we’ll have strength enough to open back up again.
Deep in their roots,
all flowers keep the light.
– Theodore Roethke
What I see are the remnants of an old factory or something – I don’t even know what this was. What I think is “I want to go in there!” I can’t pass by any kind of old run-down, boarded-up, falling-down structure without a burning desire to explore it.
Buildings have souls too.
What I see is a couple of Osprey who’ve built their nest on someone’s boat. What I know is I wouldn’t want to be the one who has to evict them.
There is nothing in which the birds
differ more from man
than the way in which they can build
and yet leave a landscape as it was before.
– Robert Wilson Lynd
