We're in the U.K. The heat is daunting. There's no air-conditioning. The exchange rate is horrendous. There's no majority government. No one knows who the prime minister will be in a few weeks. Fires. Stabbings. People run down with vehicles.
The natural world seems to be carrying on as usual. The fox hunts the pheasant. Wild poppies grow in a wheat field. If all humanity ceased to exist tomorrow, this big beautiful Earth would barely notice.
We've been walking around taking in all of it- the old buildings, the wildflowers, the changing landscape of this country. Europe is in general known in America as The Old World but it's renewed every day. This is the core purpose of art, to see the world in new ways. Through the senses of the artist we experience the world more truly, even through fiction, as our senses are renewed to the ever-changing world.
"There's nothing new under the sun." -- Ecclesiastes
"You could not step twice into the same river." -- Heraclitus
