A Walk With Perception by linaji

Currently unavailable for purchase

Created in CS4 all my own images and brushes

They were out on the same walk

She saw buildings
He saw the sky

She saw shadows
He saw the shadows of birds that fly

She saw a crack
He saw a crevice

She saw a hole
He saw a ditch

She saw the homeless
He saw the rich

She saw a rock
He saw a diamond

When they got home they looked into each other’s eyes,
How shall we ever agree on this life at the same time?
They said all at once
She said
We must learn to revel in our differences
Lets go against society,
Every time I see differently or you do
Lets break out the champagne and the sweet meats
Every time one sees a problem.. Lets celebrate for the other
Every time one sees a solutions lets do it again …
Celebrate each other.. And then we will loose track of
Perfect timing cause every moment will be just perfect!!

So they made a pact and they went for walks
When she saw buildings and he saw the sky they both
Were so happy for what the other was seeing it was like they were seeing EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE.
It was like it did not matter any more who saw what when or where; It just mattered that they were together.
And guess what?

    beautiful image… actually the differences can make walks become different stories we tell each other, we see things that the other doesn’t see, I think that is what the poem is about..

    this movie did you see it? It is about black and white non changing thinking and liveing and bout contrast. It is about expansion of life and ideas because of contrast as then there is a desire to know more to ask for more.
    Just a question on how we judge what will make us a happy couple or friend ect..
    I am so different from my friend Brian, yet the things we do meet on are profound and wonderful, so I allow for much with our differences and at times I revel in his.
    It takes practice for me to allow for others to be as they are and find peace in that. I am at a constant vigil within my own thinking for this kind of allowing of others. Because once I do change the way I view my expectations of others in my life and begin to allow for all of life to reveal itself (always seeing the benefit of contrast in hindsight) it is here I find my greatest peace.
    Thanks so much Red..xox
