“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.”
― William Blake
What a gift it would be to be able to see things that clearly. An even greater gift would be to be able to convey that infinite vision in such a way that everyone could see it too. Kind of like the late great jazz poet Lord Buckley’s poem about Jesus the Nazz who ‘ had them pretty eyes.
He wanted everybody to see with pretty eyes and see how pretty it was.’ I used to believe my main quest in life was understanding and now I realize that that is at best half of it. What good is understanding if you have no way to convey it, no way to use it to help people. It would be an empty insight indeed that stayed up locked up inside one man’s head. Therefore, I wish not only to have ‘pretty eyes’, the kind that sees beauty and finds understanding but I want to grant others the gift of pretty eyes as well.
