Perspective Depends on Where You Stand

Perspective Depends on Where You Stand

by Lorna Tedder · in SacredSpaces
Hi dear friends and followers. Thank you very much for visiting and reading my blog, I very much appreciated it. Today's topic is about perspectives, we all have perspective and all are unique unto ourselves.

Perspective. It’s a hell of a thing, isn’t it? You think you know what you’re looking at. You see it every day. Some thing. Or some one.

Like this tree on the farm back home.

You walk by it every day. You’re vaguely aware that it’s damaged. You might even be aware of it enough to know that there are bees in it, and honey. It has character. It’s withstood many storms, and you trust that it’s not going anywhere. It’s been part of the landscape so long that you can’t imagine home without it. You face East and this is the face it shows you.

Then one day, the grass is too wet at your feet and you are forced to take a slightly different path. And you walk all the way around the tree.

You look back, facing West for the first time. Seeing the same tree stark against a different background.

And everything you missed before stands out.

How hollow.

How damaged.

How helpless you are to make it whole again.

All you can do is marvel that it’s still standing.
Still standing
Note: Like the saying goes, hindsight is always 20 - 20. Maybe that is because our minds work like an image taken with a camera. The picture on first sight you may only notice some of the details, the rest of the details are stored away in the back of the camera's memory, or our mind. Then years later we stumble upon the picture that was stored in the camera again, and all the little details one would think would have been lost through the years, return suddenly at the snap of the fingers.

It is the same with people, places, and things. It would seem that memories are not lost, they are only stored away on some mental shelf, until someone disturbs the dust off of them.
Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.
