“We think to small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the tip of well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.”

Although progress is being made this quote still resonates true.

The past few months have been an emergence of sorts – for me – to an entirely different view. The aperture on ‘my lens’ has been opened. I’ve surfaced and am wielding a ‘wider angle lens of thought and vision’ for how things can be.
