Seeing is something

The seen and the unseen.

Both exist.

Sometimes looking carefully helps.  Other times, there simply is no seeing.  You may have other ways of knowing.  But not seeing.

Oxygen, for one.
But there are so many more. Millions more.

We live in a big, big place.  With a multitude of smalls.

If this seems vague, or cryptic.  It is.

Because our lives are built on the unknown.  Each moment.


And this is what happens to me….. ….. when Mary & I go out for Chinese Food for dinner.

“A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


“In a world of diminishing mystery, the unknown persists.”
― Jhumpa Lahiri, The Lowland


“Whenever we proceed from the known into the unknown we may hope to understand, but we may have to learn at the same time a new meaning of the word ‘understanding.”
― Werner Heisenberg, Physics and Philosophy: The Revolution in Modern Science
