Finding Your Field

—Life is whatever we conceive it to be. For the farmer who considers his field to be everything, the field is an empire. For a Caesar whose empire is never enough, the empire is a field. All that we truly possess are our own sensations; it is in them, rather than in what they sense, that we must base our life’s reality.
–Fernando Pessoa. The Book of Disquiet.
