Urban existence gives little opportunity to stop.
It can and often does, hurry us on, allowing little time to “stand and stare.”
Finding remoteness amidst the fuss of humanity allows an opportunity for that reflection.
That sense of absence and that deep breath, gives us the opportunity to appreciate the aesthetic of simple line and form.
“What is this life if, full of care
We have no time to stand and stare.”
William Henry Davies.
