Perspective is everything and yes, most of us know that. So what? But is is always a good exercise to test one's perspective and see just what you are actually looking at.
These last few months I have been working on a website for the town of Mountainair, New Mexico. The Mountainair Wire is it's name and it has been really fun to bring my perspective to you as creatively as I can!
What has been "interesting" is the feedback on my perspective. Art is always subjective and we are all seeing the world in our own way, but WOW, it is SO interesting to get a glimpse into what others see when you both think you are looking at the same thing!
So look at the picture below, what do you see in it?
Do you see what is old and broken? Or do you see what time creates with the wood, wind, and weather? Do you see empty spaces or what the objects are within the frame?
Do you see old barbed wire that is rusted and distorted? Or, do you see a symbol of hope and love?
Do you feel like you are being kept out or invited in?
Is one a lonely number or is it a courageous and adventurous number?
Perspective is everything and the last few days I have been reminded that my perspective is my own and it is okay for it to end there. I've stopped trying to change others or make them wrong for not agreeing with me. The next lesson is to not feel wrong or stupid because others don't agree with me.
And yes, knowing that is one thing - but KNOWING it when you are putting yourself out into the public eye is another level that is a bit harder to hold on to.
So, what do YOU see in these pictures?
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
