Henry Thoreau and Georges Seurat on capturing moments, realizing life.
“I am alarmed when it happens that I have walked a mile into the woods bodily, without getting there in spirit. In my afternoon walk I would… forget all my morning occupations and my obligations to society. But it sometimes happens that I cannot easily shake off the village. The thought of some work will run in my head and I am not where my body is — I am out of my senses… what business have I in the woods, if I am thinking of something outside of the woods.”
Henry David Thoreau
You shall at once, recognize the dots for what they are, and survey, [wholly better] the landscape they make up — it’s the grand beauty of it all.
Pointillism at its best.
