This morning my 14-year-old daughter observed, “Where you look is where you see.” She said it in reference to an a-ha moment for her about her literal field of vision. I paused to take a moment of gently feigned awe. We joked because it sounded tautological (she didn’t use that word…and I don’t usually either; I just remember it from a philosophy course, but I’m not even sure I’m using it right). Even she laughed as we thought about what she had just said. But the more I thought about it, the more profound I realized it was, even if she hadn’t intended it that way. Wherever one turns their attention is where their focus and energy goes. Where will my focus and energy go today?
