From Nature

“Several times per heartbeat, over and over from birth to death, we each separate the specific from the general, the figure from the ground, and decide which shape is the mushroom (or the field mouse or the lost contact lens) and which is not. We fit together the pieces that we can, and set aside the rest. The process of being unfolds as an endlessly overlapping succession of most-plausible-pictures. We become who we are by virtue of the choices we make — consciously or otherwise — about which parts belong in our story, and which parts can be left out.”

― Ted Orland, The View From The Studio Door: How Artists Find Their Way In An Uncertain World
