Everything old is new again

The secret to eternal wonderment is to release our tight grip on what we think we know, to look at all of the familiar old faces, the worn surroundings and predictable vistas, and see that they are as utterly unique as the moment we first encountered them, that they are not fully captured by our mental categorizations and ersatz memories.  (Though if you start getting lost on your way to the shower, you may have gone too far.)

“The map is not the territory.”  Look up and see, not the “mountain,” but the mountain.
