Ancient word of the day: vernation

Seeing

We do a lot of looking; we look through lenses, telescopes and TVs. Our looking is perfected every day – but we see less and less. Never has it been more urgent to speak of seeing…we are onlookers, spectators. ‘Subjects’ we are, that look at ‘objects’. Quickly, we stick labels on all that is, labels that stick once – and for all. By these labels, we recognise everything but no longer see anything. ~ Frederick Franck, The Zen of Seeing
