Seeing the gift

We can’t see the gift if we are standing at a distance.

Because we can’t see the detail of textures, shape and form.

The exquisite interconnections that make up the whole

At a distance we only perceive function and get caught up in our own narrative of what we are seeing.

The gift is not a gift if we do that. And it may become an idol.

We need to get up close and recognise the splendour of beautiful earth.

And beautiful you.

Thanks for being.
