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.
