Landscape Illusion

"Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment." ~ Rumi

Choose a site and walk until you discover an oddity, an illusion or a bewilderment.  

Notice the closer you move toward the site ways the details reveal. Your initial perspective will change and first appearances might appear less obvious.  

Observe from all angles. Blur your vision. Blink rapidly to attract nuances. View from upside down.

Consider a time in life where you colored a situation with emotions. Think of how you developed a desire for an unlikely outcome. How did your fascination alter upon closer inspection? By looking inward did different truths arrive? 

Translate this experience of wonder and information gained.

Creative Write:   Find a landscape illusion.  Take photos from a variety of distances and angles.  

Observe and feel sensations that result from the landscape's metaphor. 

Write about a relationship or a situation that altered with distance and perspective.

Use your photographs to make connections, add reflections and notions for a struggle's resolution.

Let a story or poem develop.
