Exploring a mystery

What is it?*

A painting? An apparition of nature? Digital art?

Does it make you curious? Stimulate dreams? Conjure other images? What is beyond the image borders? Is there a story?

Imagine a large painting of a picturesque summer meadow with a mountain stream running through it. If you could enter the painting, what would you do? Would you sit by the stream? Set up a tent in the meadow? Follow the stream? Hike beyond the meadow? Or??

We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time.
~ T. S. Eliot

How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Follow the river and you will find the sea.
~ French proverb
