Lichen From The Sky


Have you ever noticed that cities look like lichen from the sky?  Like lichen, growing on a rock.  It's a curious thing.  

Curious that a person can live their whole lives inside a city, and never see that.  Never see what it looks like when you get an aerial view.

In fact, of course, most people never did, flight is a very recent thing, historically.  Many people today don't fly, for whatever reason, and so they never get to see it.

But they do, cities look like lichen from high enough above.

The drama of your life is much like this.  You have the anxiety, the frustration, the fear, the anger, the hope, the dreaming - just like the streets and lights and buildings of a city.  And most people live their whole lives inside that drama, and never see that.

What does it look like when you step right back, when you get that aerial view?

What does it look like, then?
