I love this photograph.
I've used it in a prior post, but here it is again
because I think it is really special.
It has a special meaning for me.
I took it a couple of days ago in a shed on the farm.
There are 2 or 3 windows like this one, the glass seems to be old, hand made (blown) glass.
It has those blebs in them, you know.
Only on this window half of the glass is missing.
I took a few steps back and looked outside
from the dark into the light.
Beautiful trees, fresh green foliage moving in the wind.
I could smell them, hear the wind and the birds.
I looked and compared the two different views.
One clear and crisp, the other wishy-washy and blur.
We often have days where we tend to look at something or someone
and are quickly able to form an opinion.
Clear, sharp, true and honest.
On another day we might take another look,
at the same something, the same someone,
and see something completely different.
Our sense of perception might have changed.
There might be something
"in the way"
that makes our ability
to see clear and crisp
Like hard feelings, rumours and other peoples stories, opinions and views,
memories... all "handmade" as well ;-)
I often get confused when that happens.
I start to doubt my inner voice, that voice that never lies.
It feels like loosing connection with your inner self.
If that happens it is somehow scary, isn't it.
I need to be able to see what is real and true for me.
Without ANYTHING beeing in the way.
I need to be able to see what is REALLY out there.
