In these days of extremes — polarities — the endless quest for certainty the common sense words of the great designer Saarienen gives a welcome corrective: in each context think of the next larger context! I find that people focus on the extremes of either the universe or the miniature but not much in between. This is a symptom of chronic anxiety in the system.
Breathing in and out and thinking the angles is in order. There are options between the extremes. Thinking the next context is a good discipline.
