Exploring horizens

"I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. "
Isaac Newton

The joy of focusing brilliantly on something is becoming a reality as my children are older, and more off to their own pursuits. What now shall I endeavor to behold? The ocean of possibilities lies before me. On the other side of it, what truths do we miss because we are so focused on the small things. Like blinders on a carriage horse, we can miss so much when we fail to lift and turn our heads and acknowledge the goings on around us. It's easy to get into a rut, think narrowly, stay safely to what we know. How do we limit ourselves to knowing and exploring the greater possibilities that lie before us? Just a thought, however brief, before I depart for work.
Until later, blog friends. Any thought on this?
