Merely looking at the world around us is immensely different from seeing it.
~ Frederick Frank
(Canyon Loop Trail near Boulder, Colorado.)
And we: spectators, always, everywhere, looking at everything, and never from! Who’s turned us around like this, so that whatever we do, we always have the look of someone going away? Just as a person on the last hill showing him or her the whole valley one last time, turns, and stops, and lingers — so we live, and are forever leaving.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
