THE WEEKENDER-HOW DO YOU SEE IT?

POINT OF VIEW
     Some of us are bewildered by the almost instant division that appears on practically every thing anymore.  Politics, religion, social structure, meaning and significance are all points of departure.  It seems more so now than ever.
     Henri Bergson, a writer and philosopher in the early 20th century and a Nobel winner for literature wrote of the power of intuition over mechanized intellect.  He also wrote of the continual force of creative and evolutionary energy, calling it "elan vital." I like the concept; never ending expression of new, original, life, birthing, a driving force to creation and understanding.  Mix that with my opening premise above and I'm left to conclude "some people get it and some just don't."
     Some adapt, learn, evolve, grow, expand. Some don't. Some see differences as a space in which opportunity exists, others see boundaries. While we all probably "get set in our ways," as rapidly as science is expanding and cognitive understanding is occurring and computer assistance advances, getting hung up in "old thought" seems to be counter to progress.  But then there are those who find "Progressive" a frightful term. So we come full circle.
      What's it mean?  Maybe we are indeed from different hemispheres of the brain, or different planets!

Even the shadows enjoy the moment. 
 There may be better acoustical stages, but none with a better point of view.
THE ULTIMATE EXERCISE IN POINT OF VIEW
THIS IS LOTS OF FUN
     Thanks to my long time friend, artist and musician Jim for forwarding this video.  We are probably from close to the same planet.
      Have a great weekend.
      See you down the trail.

  1. I think she'd be a pain even without the nail. But it sure is funny.

  2. Like your posting today, although it might be called Point of Perspective. Later today I'll be posting at skfigler.com on a similar topic, although I don't attribute it to hemispheres or planets, rather to mangoes.
    Also, I love that video.
