see

imageThis picture has sat on my desk for many years a constant reminder that two people can look at the same situation and see something completely different. The necessity to communicate when what is obvious to you may not be obvious to me. To try to find ways to explain and understand that there can be more than one interpretation of events. To remember words too can obscure as easily as they inform. To see a young woman and an old woman too.  To be able to see what you see.

Have a good day

One thought on “see

  1. Two people can look at the same words and see something completely different. Long, long ago, when I did my sums on an electromechanical calculator and was a very junior faceless bureaucrat, I apologised to a boss two levels above me for misinterpreting his memo. He immediately replied that if something was capable of two interpretations then the fault lay with the writer. I’ve never forgotten that.
