I know we can’t live life from a distance, detached.

But occasionally we want to see things from above, looking at the whole  and the how the parts of the puzzle fit together.

“Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.”
– Charles Lindbergh

Aesop said, “It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.”

He may have meant something else when he said that, but oftentimes the situation does become clearer when seen objectively.

Stepping up sometimes means stepping back.
