How to be an Explorer of the World

Posted by on Apr 16, 2011 in Book review, Linchpin | No Comments

Recently got a book in my hands which contains simple, yet amazing tips on how to treat the world like an artist and reflect on what you experience in your world:

Write down ten things about the place you’re sitting which you did not recognise when you sat down. Use your senses. Do it quickly. Don’t censor yourself. Go ahead!

“The world we live in, especially the awesome details, can be obscured to us by their simplicity or prosaicness. You don’t notice them because they are directly before your eyes.” (paraphrasing Ludwig Wittgenstein).
