The One Window

By Carol










"There is a beautiful complexity of growth within the human soul. In order to glimpse this, it is helpful to visualize the mind as a tower of windows.  Sadly, many people remain trapped at the one window, looking out every day at the same scene in the same way. Real growth is experienced when you draw back from that one window, turn, and walk around the inner tower of the soul and see all the different windows that await your gaze.  Through these different windows, you can see new vistas of possibility, presence, and creativity. Complacency, habit, and blindness often prevent you from feeling your life. So much depends on the frame of vision -- the window through which you look. "

Looking at the same thing in different ways is what we are taught to do as photographers and this quote says it perfectly. Yes, so much depends on the window you're looking through!

Oh, I love that window! And yes, we do need to remember there is always more than one perspective on everything.

This is the perfect picture for this great quote! Photography has shown me how to look from different perspectives.
