-by Andy Dudas-
We see things in life in many different ways. As they could be, as they were, but seldom as they are. Yearning for more than we have or wishing things could go back to how they used to be.
We see ourselves in ways that we aspire and at times despise. Reaching down within yourself and finding the determination to overcome and finding new ways to grow. Falling down and wallowing in the self-pity of our failures that can be all too comfortable.
As we grow and find our own point of view, we begin to think we know who we are, or at least who we want to be. Things that mattered most, suddenly have become those which now matter least. Our tastes and preferences change as adulthood focuses our view of our world and those within.
Realization and acknowledgement of personal limitations as an adult is a painful, sometimes crippling lesson. If we are lucky, the one thing we can learn of this world and ourselves and our place within it, is humility. Few things are more humbling than a public display of our own bumbling ineptitude.
Finding our path is difficult. There are many routes to distract and lead us astray from what we thought was our goal. Each day presents us with a new window from which to view the world. Life can frustrate us as we backtrack to our original path after a trip down a lane of failure.
Waxing philosophic about the eternal question of Why? is an endeavor solved by minds greater than mine. Instead of traveling further down a road to which we all find our own answers, I submit the following images. Or rather, image(singular) as they are all the same photograph. Different interpretations of the same image. The same view seen through different eyes. Some will appeal to none. Some may appeal to all.
What do you see?
