Day 3246: Perspective

Let’s get some perspective, here and now, by starting off with a definition of “perspective.”

Last night — when my son Aaron, my husband Michael, and I returned to an old, familiar haunt of ours with new perspectives — I made sure to take photos of a mural that has very unusual perspective.

I have such fond memories of seeing that mural from the perspective of our much younger selves. Last night, Michael and Aaron remarked that these two …

… evoked Michael and his twin brother.

My perspective is that I love that mural and everyone observing it last night. And Wild Willie’s Burgers has a new perspective since we were last there: they now offer more vegetarian options.

What perspective do you bring to my other images for today?

Because that list has a USA National Perspective, it doesn’t mention that today is also International Transgender Day of Remembrance.

I find the perspective of Alan Watts when I search YouTube for “perspective.”

Please express your perspective in the comments section, below.

From my perspective, I am grateful for all perspectives, including yours!

  1. From my perspective, coming here in the morning after taking a hiatus from so many things social media related, felt like a brand new day awakening!
    Thanks for that Burger bottle photo with questions — it reminded me of Natalie Golberg’s writing exercise to write from the perspective of objects around you — like the seat of the chair upon which you sit. Always fun!

    Answer to last question: You!

  3. I don’t need to be confused by similar sounding words, I can manage quite well on my own!

  4. That’s a lovely photo of your mom and Aaron. I wasn’t surprised to see that photo but I was surprised to see Joan on top of the microwave. I shouldn’t have been as Joan is an out of the box explorer who finds joy in every space.

    Thank you for reminding us that it is Transgender Day of Remembrance. I found it moving that President Biden made a statement about it.

  5. i love seeing the same situation from different perspectives. and i’m guessing someone’s perspective is coming from under the couch.

  6. It’s true that perspective is everything, and I often need that reminder when I’m confident that I have the best (only) opinion on almost anything. LOL! I love the photo of Joan with the tiger. The perspective in the shot indicates the tiger is petting Joan, and giving comfort. 🙂

  7. Perspective is like having multiple views of subjects, much like the compound eyes of an insect, It allows one to spot subtle differences from different angles. A wide perspective means one’s former world, suddenly became a universe.

  8. Your blog observations put the stake observations on my day in A1 style, Ann.
