Perspective is everything


Perspective is everything

One person can look at a vase of wilted sunflowers

And think they are not worthy of photographing

Van Gogh can look at the same vase

And paint a picture of them which is worth millions now

Things are not what they seem they are

They are what we perceive them to be

A worn coat can seem without value

For someone else, that same coat keeps the memory of their father alive

What I write are mere words on paper

But those words can touch someone’s heart

A tragic situation can be seen as a gift

That increases one’s understanding and value of life

An illness can be a wake up call

Unjust imprisonment, detachment from the things of this world

I will try to look at things such that I see their value

Every thing can be a teacher and everyone a guide
