To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle.

In Memoriam, NYC 9/11

Gone now is the day and gone the sun 
There is peace tonight all over Arlington 
But the songs of my life will still be sung 
By the light of the moon you hung 

I meant to ask you how to plow that field 
I meant to bring you water from the well 
And be the one beside you when you fell 
Could you tell 

Bang the drum slowly play the pipe lowly 
To dust be returning from dust we begin 
Bang the drum slowly I'll speak of things holy 
Above and below me world without end

Emmylou Harris, “Bang The Drum Slowly”
