On the Discipline of Seeing

in nature, paint, & text

When we read a text, we sometimes notice the overall outline, or perhaps a bit that interests us, and then we quit looking, and start to mentally fill in the rest. Just as nature is more varied than our natural mental ability to fill in, so the text is more varied and interesting than what we project into it.
