Room With A View
We always want to have the best view we can find. Seeing is one of the greatest pleasures in life. When we attend a musical, theatrical or sporting event we want the best seats we can afford so we can see and enjoy the performance better. Despite societal overcrowding there are still enough plants and animals to capture the imagination and fascination of nature buffs. We use binoculars and telescopes to envision what is happening hundreds of yards or thousands of miles from where we are standing. We can wear "corrected" glasses to help us see small print and objects better.
The other side of the coin is the desire to be seen and the subject of media exposure that creates spectacles of all manner of events. A paparazzo is forever trying to candidly catch noteworthy people in awkward moments so that magazines will buy their photos so that many others will pay to see them when published. We often will buy our homes or rent hotel rooms depending upon the view their windows offer us. The difficulty extreme visibility often brings with the view is that it now makes us vulnerable to being seen in full view performing daily functions no matter how mundane.
When we reach out and embrace our neighbors we see pictures that enhance everyday life in our own international community.
