“I was walking through a snowy street…The gray light of the day and the muffled sounds of the activity around me enhanced my mood for seeing things I wouldn't see regularly. Voices and faces broke my trance, and I was put to deal with watching them as they moved before the stage of my harbor backdrop.
In my vision of them, reckless and unconcerned, they fit precisely into their surroundings. One, I had the slice of harbor. Two, I had the major structures of buildings around them. Three, I had the people all moving together at a consistent pace with their surroundings. The implications of their inter-relationships became an endless source for my imagination.
Yes, I could see all three, even while looking only at shoes or a scarf. No matter what I chose to see, I saw all. I had come to a new level.”
