An ode to looking up
Everyone, look up from your phones once in a while. Don't stay hunkered over something you never used to rely on. That's not taking control, but having control taken of you. And the life sapped out of you.
Look at the trees. See how gold blends into green. Imagine the myriad lifeforms aching for survival, spirited by sun, and leveled again by wind and rain. Think of chance and change. Picture numerous futures in those fields, in the woods beyond, and further still in the rippling lakes.
You were once part of that - still are. You might never be more connected than you were then.
