Perspective

January 22nd, 2009

Perspective
per spek tiv
-Noun
A technique of depicting volumes and spatial relationships on a flat surface.

the state of one’s ideas, the facts known to one, etc., in having a meaningful interrelationship

Do you ever get so focused on one particular aspect of a thing only to realize you are seeing it differently than you thought?  I mean, you imagine it one way and in seeing it, you try to force it to conform to what you imagined?  It may or may never be what you once thought it was, but it also might never have been.  Wanting something to be that way will not magically make it that way.

That’s just vague enough to sound like a horoscope.  Aquarius: Something will happen today that you won’t recognize happened until you remember that something was supposed to have happened.

Anyway, back to what I was saying.  Sometimes I get so caught up in trying to make the world conform to how I think it should be, that I forget how it really is.  I forget that doing the right thing won’t keep you from being made a fool.  I forget sometimes that having the right-of-way won’t make you any less dead in an accident.  You still have to pay attention.  You still have to occasionally change your point of view, if only to protect your sanity.

When I drew today’s Every Day Matters challenge, draw your glasses, I stared at the finished sketch for several minutes.  There is something off, more off than usual.  It took me a while to realize that I sat straight up while trying to draw what I see on a sketchbook laying flat on the table.  So, looking straight on, the perspective was askew.
