Here is a granddaddy longlegs (or daddy longlegs, depending on where you're from). What I see is a tiny little creature, with great big legs, who was just hanging out on my front porch. What I think is that you don't need a lot of frills to be interesting. Or even beautiful.
Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not simpler.
– Albert Einstein
Coming in from a walk one afternoon, I reached in to pull the door open and touched something small and fuzzy. I immediately knew it was the scary creature who'd been flitting around my light fixture all morning. What I see is a little guy who I wouldn't want to cross. What I think is that we were equally afraid of each another.
Size doesn’t matter,
neither in our capacity for fear,
nor in our ability
to put the fear in others.
I took this picture while out on a cruise of the yard with my dog, Louis. What I see is the typical detritus of a woody landscape. What I think of is a sturdy shell being carried away on a river of rain, a tiny boat and an insect family, who are scared and thrilled and excited and wet, floating away to parts yet unknown...to wherever my imagination dares to take them.
is but a canvas
to our imaginations.
– Henry David Thoreau
