    Looking at this picture started me wondering. How much do we participate in life and how much do we merely view?

    Well, obviously there are times we just view more or less mindlessly. But there are also times we create and times when we participate in something that someone else has created. How much you choose to view, create or participate depends on you. Today I've put up two more pieces on my web-site (create/participate); spent some time on here and on the rangefinder forum (participate); and read a book and a newspaper (view -- and listening to the wireless is the same sort of activity). Nor are things always separable. The things we learn from viewing/reading can be translated into participation (especially in politics) and in creativity. So it strikes me that the question doesn't necessarily mean very much.

    Cheers,

    R.
