Ideas

1

Whenever we look at houses and storefronts, think about all the different people, their stories and lives within each place.
And this is multiplied by hundreds and thousands of times, where each and every individual has lived a rich and deep life.

With some paths & connections that have significant overlap, and others that don't at all.

We often only see and therefore think about those immediately around us.
And because of this, we often don't think or feel any connection to the family members that we haven't shared time with.

But we forget that not only does each family member share some of the same genes, but also, who we are shapes our children and those that come after them, and who we are has been shaped by those that come before us.

Zooming out and thinking in a time horizon well beyond our lives, can change some of the ways we think about what we want to do in this world.

Those who go down the same path, don't always end up at the same place.
It's possible to understand the world from studying a leaf. You can comprehend the laws of aerodynamics, mathematics, poetry and biology through the complex beauty of a leaf.

But it's also possible to travel the whole globe and learn nothing.
