Seeing, pt 2


So, I'm trying to see better, to broaden my horizons as a person and as a writer. The other day I took a writing walk and mixed it up a bit by heading south on the street I usually take north (and vice versa). It's amazing how different things looked.

Speaking of seeing things differently, check out this image by Mark Fischer. It's a picture of what a whale song looks like. Yes, an image of sound. He uses a technique that processes digital signals and turns them into visual art (many of them mandelas). He's got images of the sounds of birds, whales and dolphins. Very cool stuff!

i've found that doing things a bit differently once in a while also increases the possibility of synchronicity. kudos for going south!

the image is serene.
