Lovely post, but I'm not sure that this kind of all-encompassing noticing is entirely an act of will. In my experience, such experiences just seem to happen. Your article reminds me of Adlestrop, by Edward Thomas:


It's been one of my favourite poems since I first came across it in an English lesson when I was 14, which was a long time ago!

Love the drawing: it really captures the essence of the whole piece.
