Love or hate it, we take for granted it will be there tomorrow – unchanged.
Our view doesn’t change.
But how we see everything changes over time.
Value of things doesn’t change quickly, but what we value – and why, changes inexorably toward whatever we are destined to find – happiness, or not. Laughter or tears, sunshine or clouds, winter or summer – happens to everyone.
But what do we see, how do we feel, how do we change?
I don’t know if everyone knows this term ‘great room’. Opinions of it will vary; a construction term, a marketing term, about design and function. And it’s about a feeling. I spent some time recently in a home with a great room. What makes a room great, really? Is it volume of space, windows and view or what goes on there? So many ways to describe great rooms …
And, for advanced players – how do you describe a phenomenal room? Is it view, inside or outside, or is it where ambient noise meets silence, where peace within meets quiet without action from anyone.
I spent time in someone’s home – in someone’s life; I walked around and saw their view from inside and out, saw scene and unseen, experienced their landscape – new to me. Theirs looks forward and back, up and down and then all around. Feelings we experience are conscious and involuntary – like wagging dog’s tail, telegraphing an experience, expressing their feelings without moving or uttering words.
What comes next comes next. Maybe something. Maybe everything. Maybe nothing. Tomorrow comes after today, that’s for certain.
