From high above the landscape below was flat and arid for as far as the eye could see, then in the far distance what seemed a deep scar. As we approached the scar was discerned as a tightly twisted watercourse that took the most convoluted route possible in order to move forward in a relatively straight line.

The thought process went along the lines of “…a bit like 21st century ‘first-world’ society really … if there is a difficult way to get somewhere and there is an opportunity to make a wider impression than is really necessary to achieve a result, then go for it…”

But when working with this image I craved for a less biased view of that which was initially perceived, and began to take a more dispassionate look from afar, looking at the same thing from different angles, putting it all together in different ways, and suddenly a new perspective became a possibility.

The judgmental negative frame of mind was transformed with the emergence of a sitting Buddha … brought me back to a preferred way of being in the world.

Others see quite a different element in this image…
