Part Of The Whole...


Perspective may be one of our most powerful and underutilized tools. How we define our experiences has a lot to do with the way we are looking at them, and sometimes we are challenged to see the entirety precisely because we are standing right in the middle of it. In science this limitation is called The Observer Effect: just by observing something we actually change the nature of it...


There is nothing like a conflict to help draw the power of perspective to the forefront. Two people, facing the same direction but perceiving totally different things.

What a wonderful gift and a terrible burden- to know that our participation is constantly co-creating the situation- that the way we interact with the world collectively constructs it.
