STOP AND THINK – The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. (Marcel Proust, 19th-20th century French novelist)
Is it possible that we have become so attached to our surroundings and our limited experiences that we miss seeing the potential around us? Are we wasting time wishing for new vistas, longing to visit new places, wanting new situations to experience? As Proust suggests, perhaps all we really need is to look at what we have with fresh eyes.
Do you have eyes but fail to see? (Mark 8:18)
