Perception is everything and nothing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Its all relative. There are always two or even more sides to a story. You get it. We all get it in our own ways. Everyday life is a chicken corn chowder recipe in which we all know the base ingredients but we differ on the amount of paprika and spices we put into it.
Your salty pretzels are bland to me. Your spicy salsa is mild at best. You may see in black and white but I see gray. I live comfortably in nuance. Ambiguity drives me and presents an opportunity. At times I like to color outside the lines. Whatever that means. And, I am sure that means something different to each of us.
There are so many interpretations of a scene that I am surprised we ever find anything to agree on anymore. When you see a blotch what do you envision? And, how easy is it to see things from someone else’s point of view. We say that we each should try to do so but we are also taught to be skeptical. We can’t even be guaranteed that we will see something the same way twice. That is why one should strive to be ok with nuance and ambiguity. There is much in everyday life that needs to be unpacked and there should be joy in that because it means we are alive.
