Seeing Things Differently

I’ve been a fan of Bill Mason’s films and books for several decades.  He was a proponent of wood canvas canoes, canvas tents, and traditional skills of the bush.  I picked out a great quotation from his film Waterwalker the other night:

You see things differently when you travel the way the native peoples did.

In the internet age where information is instantly available and people are busy accumulating piles of it, the importance of getting out and actually doing it is greater than ever before.  And when you get out and do it (whatever it may be), the world is a different place.  Or at least you experience it in a different way.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
