I’m afraid that I might have swallowed some local water in Florida and was suffering from a little gastric ick earlier today. At least I had something thought provoking to look at on the bathroom wall at Tarpon Springs:
Interestingly enough, we had a dialogue this week at school that asks us to contemplate the effect that changing one’s perspective has on creativity. Changing something, deviating from the normal has been known to get the creative juices flowing. This particular quote struck me as interesting because it implies that even if we go to new places, unless we have an open mind and use “new eyes” we won’t really have a true voyage of discovery.
Conversely, one can make discoveries without having to go very far from home but instead looking at things through new eyes.
