When it is dark outside and your lights are on, it is easy to see your reflection in the living room window.
During the day your reflection is still right in front of you, but it is more difficult to see.
You can choose to focus on it; you can check your makeup or comb your hair, but as soon as the mailman drops by your attention diverts.
If the view is more interesting: kids running through sprinklers and the neighbor’s dog off his leash, it is unlikely you will see your reflection at all.
We live in a culture with ever more daylight and an ever more interesting view.
A question worth asking ourselves is: what’s right in front of us that we’re missing?
