We all felt, at least once, that our problems have become big and heavy as dinosaurs. To overcome this deceiver proportion, I think it helps to lift our eyes to the sky. “Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us” said the great Carl Sagan.
While this is a big perspective, there’s also the small one, equally beautiful. Using our eyes or adding a lens for details, we can take a look at the universe beneath our feet, in grandma’s backyard or the city park. It abounds in life, colorful, diverse, complex, fascinating life.
“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” (John Keats)
Spiders spinning their clever webs, watching for prey with robot-like eyes, eating it unhurried, exploring.
Ants are always on the run.
