Matter of Perception

It looks like a ruin. It looks like it’s not been lived in for centuries. Don’t let looks deceive you.

Seeing takes time – you won’t if you cast a casual glance at the tower, you need patience. Focus on the battlement. Don’t take your eyes away. Blink, if you must, but blink fast. Occupy your mind, distract it – think about a favourite holiday, the food you couldn’t live without, the person you desire. Relax. But don’t take your eyes away.

Don’t complain about the sun blinding you. They are easier to spot in bright sunshine.

You see them, don’t you?
