The pure, distinct filter of distance
creates beauty
not distilled by familiarity or the
dusty film of ordinary-ness.
Distance romanticizes foreign lands
and strangers.
It breeds stargazers and explorers
travelers and writers.
Distance gives a bird’s-eye view
to the whole of the world,
telescoping ordinary to extraordinary
and drawing me endlessly in.
