What is your perspective?

How is it that we can view things so differently in a world of sameness? I am continually reminded that what I may perceive as a particular reality, another will perceive differently. Here is an illustration; I will use art for my example. Being an artist since I was a young woman, I have a tremendous love and appreciation for all the arts. It is a wonderful gift that there are those, young and old, both male and female, who dare to be bold, creative and willing to share their work for all to see. While going to a gallery or art show, I view a painting with a sense of admiration for all the intricate and/or delicate work. I marvel at the brush strokes and the beauty of the magnificent color combinations. I purposely take time to see all the fine details. I love to see how artists portray their unique talents in many ways, some being very abstract. Another potential customer may come in and stand beside me, view the exact picture, pause one moment and then quickly move to the next piece. At the end of the day, we will both leave the gallery having a new experience. What determines if it was a good or bad experience? There are many different perspectives that we are continually drawing upon to help us process all incoming stimuli, then make a decision. Every participant left with various thoughts concerning their experience. Each color, shape, form, and visual image specifically and purposefully placed. These dynamics are used with intention, to reveal in each art piece different feelings and emotions, with hopes to communicate their message to the eye of the beholder. We all have eyes to see and ears to hear. How clearly do we see? How well do we hear? These factors are included in the process of drawing a conclusion. One reason I love to be creative and do art is for this very reason. I see a true mysterious and beautiful experience take place when we observe art. I wonder, “How is it that each piece will tell its own story, yet each shall be heard differently by every listener”?
