… All landscapes ask the same question in the same whisper.
‘I am watching you — are you watching yourself in me?’
To tune in, without reverence, idly — but with real inward attention…
You can extract the essence of a place once you know how.
If you just get as still as a needle, you’ll be there.
- Lawrence Durrell, Spirit of Place: Letters and Essays on Travel
