When I started this page, I found myself decorating the edges, but not the middle. At first I started to think about focus, that the eyes were led to the middle as if the pattern was blinkers on a horse.
But then I started to look at it the other way round - that the view should be broad, but the pattern was impinging. This led me to think about what I allow to encroach and cloud my vision. What do I need to blinkers against?
