These ‘perspective’ cards are a collection of eloquent invitations to remind us to look at life in newfound virtue, helping us deal with our own problems. Each card shines a new light on things coloured by time, space, and culture. For instance:
A Child Looking at Ants. The child doesn’t know the science of insect life – but they’re newly astonished by the strangeness of existence nevertheless. What would it be like to be a miniscule creature marching in file towards a tiny fissure at the base of a brick wall? Do they have friends? Do they get sad? Do they know they are being watched? The least thing, properly attended to, could furnish a lifetime of thought. We don’t have to stop speculating, as we once did.
