How far can you see?
From where I sit, my sight is limited. Walls surround me and the one window within view…the blinds on it are drawn.
I know there is life beyond these walls that block my farsight and inhibit my foresight. I know because I hear what I cannot see.
If I move, my ability to see changes from nearsightedness to farsightedness.
If I move to where I can see beyond the bounds of home and beyond the boundaries of “me” I can see where and how my neighbors live – and beyond that the environment in which we move. And, beyond that…I can see the horizon in places where objects and buildings don’t block my view. And, I can see to the corner, but not around it.
Over the horizon and around the corner are farther than I can see.
And, that’s where tomorrow lies – and not only tomorrow. Over the horizon and around the corner is where my next breath…thought…moment lies.
…farther than I can see.
