Less than Spectacular

“To know the pleasures of an unspectacular landscape, such as that of Indiana, requires an uncommon degree of attentiveness and insight.”

~Scott Russell Sanders, “Landscape & Imagination”

Or maybe it just requires that we (learn to) value the less-than-spectacular: that which is merely here, in front of us, right now.

Though I suppose that would be uncommon as well.
