Go set a watchman

Go post a watchman
change your perspective
find a spatial view:
the good in Atticus
is the good in all..
The wrinkles we find
come from illusionary
separate selves..
The waking we need
is the watchman's view
of luminosity 
burning away
those false images
separation's illusions...

6 For thus the Lord said to me:
“Go, post a lookout,
    let him announce what he sees.
7 When he sees riders, horsemen in pairs,
    riders on donkeys, riders on camels,
let him listen diligently,
    very diligently.”
8 Then the watcher[a] called out:
“Upon a watchtower I stand, O Lord,
    continually by day,
and at my post I am stationed
    throughout the night.
9 Look, there they come, riders,
    horsemen in pairs!”
Then he responded,
    “Fallen, fallen is Babylon;
and all the images of her gods
    lie shattered on the ground.”
11 The oracle concerning Dumah.

One is calling to me from Seir,
    “Sentinel, what of the night?
    Sentinel, what of the night?”
12 The sentinel says:
“Morning comes, and also the night.
(from Isiah 21..)
