To See Takes Time by Mary Ann Reilly

Georgia O’Keeffe wrote, ""Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like having a friend takes time." I think this is a significant quality of genius: the capacity and the will to look deeply at the ordinary, imagine it as other, and compose a re-presentation that allows the viewer/listener/reader to feel other.
