Still Learning To See

Root path in road cut rock, North Street, East Montpelier, Vermont

One of the gifts of the many road cuts that come along with road improvements is being able to see the insides of rocks, places never seen before or only “seen” by water and roots moving through cracks. How beautiful is the chemistry of this road cut rock—rusty irons, blue slates, small square beds that once held garnets—all now so clearly visible when I slow down to see? I photographed this again just last week, still there waiting for anyone who wants to slow down.

One thought on “Root path in road cut rock, North Street, East Montpelier, Vermont

  1. Wonderful, John–and the key is that such wonders are waiting “for anyone who wants to slow down.” You’re a great teacher in terms that “learning to see” also includes “learning to slow down”. I think of John Muir on his thousand-mile walk and all that he saw:

    Thanks so much for sharing your sight 🙂
