“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” Albert Einstein
When I started this blog 276 days ago, I was clueless. I thought it would be great to have some kind of creative activity to try every day to challenge me to think. Within a few days, I realized that just doing this daily post was the challenge.
I usually start my posts by looking at a picture and reacting to it. Yet, like Einstein says, it’s not really that easy. What we see has been colored by what we have learned from those we respect. At times, it’s even hard for me to express how I feel about something because I can’t always put my finger on my feelings.
Here’s a perfect example. I snapped this picture quite a while ago and find myself coming to it from time to time. I’d like to write about the reason I snapped the picture, but I just can’t seem to put it into words. Each time we pass this grove of trees, I feel drawn to it, but for what reason? I can’t explain.
Symmetry is not the answer. It’s not really symmetrical. Contrast might be where it’s at, and it definitely speaks of peace. Yet, that’s not why I took the picture.
So, today, I’m writing somewhat clueless, and that’s fine with me.
Is there anything about which you feel clueless?
