There is a time I vividly remember during my years of Art College, (which was around the early 1990’s) where my studies and other aspects in life became overwhelming. My perspectives were somewhat blown out of proportion, where the clutter of small incidents seemed like mountains.
Being unfamiliar with a few areas surrounding the college where I was studying, a decision was made to rectify that by climbing one of the nearby hills as far as I could during my lunch hour. A level was reached where trees gave way to a breathtaking panoramic view (the above picture is over Swansea Bay; although not the exact spot from where I stood, it gives an impression of what I saw) that had me transfixed. Besides the ability to scan the entirety of Swansea Bay from such a height, I was amazed to notice how everything looked so small – even to the location where my tutorials took place. Everything was seen in its right perspective; nothing looked overwhelmingly large from where I was standing as everything stood in proportion, each building in relation to another; everything could be seen for what it really was.
