Practice periphery vision...that's where creative ideas live


Evening Ocean View


Been practicing your periphery vision? Exercising your editing function? Reading a little philosophy now and again?

Raw data (even when speeded up) is not information.

The Japanese concept of forest bathing might be a way to allow one to remember how to be oneself, in the midst of all the speedy innovations, changes, inventions.

Just stopping to breathe, to appreciate Nature, might be one path to understanding the surround sound of our time? Hmmm.... Wasn't that the message of the Romantic poets and composers, as the agrarian world morphed into the Industrial Age?

Maybe it's time to re-read Alice Through the Looking Glass...Alice had to run very fast just to stand still. Yes, this was written for another era, the fully on Victorian industrial time, and was imagined by a mathematician...maybe the perfect story to rediscover for our binary age?

In change lies opportunity. Catch it!

2020 smiles hello.
