Slow sight

When we are moving at our normal speed, we settle into our normal range of sight.

This is practical and helpful. If we noticed everything we’d be overwhelmed and couldn’t function.

But we don’t only have one gear. And we could be more intentional about how we observe.

Thus, the task is not so much to see
what no one yet has seen,
but to think what nobody yet has thought
about that which everybody sees.

Schopenhauer, quoted in A Simpler Way by Margaret J Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers
