The art of nature is all in the direction of concealment. Power of attention and a mind sensitive to outward objects, in these lies the secret of observing things. The observer puts all the powers of his mind in perception, every faculty is directed outward, the whole mind sees through the eye and hears through the ear. Look intently enough at anything and you will see something that would otherwise escape you.
John Burroughs, 1908
The dream of my life
is to lie down by a slow river
and stare at the light in the trees…
To learn something by being nothing
a little while but the rich
lens of attention..
'Entering the Kingdom'
