a glimpse

 

glimpse: DESTINATION(LESS) | To be a place, a place just needs to be. To be a destination, a place needs to be more. Furthermore, it seems to be commonly agreed upon that a place can only become a destination, when said more is commonly agreed upon. Moreover, the more agree, the more a place becomes more. Yet, sometimes less is more, no? Unless what matters to you matters less to you than what matters to most, what’s just a place for them, might be just the place for you; a place to many, but a destination to one beholder’s eye, previously hidden on a map we never laid eyes on. Looking at this nameless house in Quito, Ecuador, I see an extraordinary architectural character and beauty on par with any glorified Manhattan landmark. Destinationless wandering made me find what I didn’t look for.

glimpse: ROW | A partaking in society tightly outlined by conformity. A repetitive pattern. A falling in line. A look down that road reveals what’s in store down that line. A perpetual wait for tomorrow. The same box with the same facade with the same outlook. Rowing hard, day in, day out, wash, rinse, repeat. Unfortunately, caught in your own freedom, there is nobody to rebel against but yourself. And rebellion is lonely. And rebellion hurts. And the price is high and the prize uncertain. I heard the comfort zone is safe and snuggly.  I might just stay in. But tomorrow, yes tomorrow…
