I like watching people.
I like watching people.
It is my experience that you can learn from everybody regardless of who they are. Age, experience or mental ability are no restrictions to this learning experience. When my son was around 3 I was using picture flash cards to teach him new words. When I presented him with a picture of a fire hydrant, he said it was a water hydrant. Of coarse with my superior experience and knowledge I corrected him by telling him it was a fire hydrant. He reply, Dad it doesn’t spray fire. To which I had to admit, son you’re right, it’s a water hydrant. At this point I began to realize I was in for an education. Not only are there in many cases more than one solution to a problem but it depends on an individuals outlook and or personality how they view any given situation,
I like photography and use a camera as a way to create my form of what is art. Each person views the world through different eyes which gives them their viewpoint of beauty based on their own personal likes and dislikes. As an example, my wife also likes photography and will take pictures of things I will continually pass up because I see no beauty in it. The same is true for her. I am more of a realist and look for detail in contrast while she simply looks for the simplicity in the beauty of an object. The same is true in life. While I see black and white she she’s the color in the world and makes decisions based on what she sees. Another example became painfully visible of this phenomena while on a trip to Sturgis back in “97” My bike was experiencing problems with it’s charging system as we were trying to make our motel before dark. While we were running down I-90 my wife’s shouts over the roar of my Harley, “Isn’t that a beautiful sunset? I got to admit I couldn’t believe her nerve. Didn’t she realize the situation we were in? At almost the same instant I look over and realized, yes she did! We were riding trough a day that was quickly fleeting and giving us one of the most beautiful sunsets ever. The lesson learned? When our world is falling apart, we still reside in a world of wonderment and beauty. Without looking through another’s eyes we may miss those things and only see what has been made painfully aware to us. What is reality? Both!! to see? Each relationship we enter into gives us another perspective on how the world is viewed. Take time to see the world through the eyes of others, the things you may see could affect the outcome of an otherwise bad day or decision.
Slow down and take the time to see what others see.
Bye for now, take care, each of you are special and unique in their own way and make the world just a little brighter by simply being you!
Be true to yourselves and those around you
