Daily Prompt: Skewed

Seeing things askew
Creates different points of view
Bringing insights new.

I wonder how many of us are stuck in our ways; only seeing the world through the common point of view, which suits ourselves. Taking a ‘skewed’ perspective can be positive. It makes for a new look at the world as we know it and we can begin to discover things we weren’t aware were there. Have you ever looked at something and suggested to a child, “Look at that,” while seeing something which is obvious to us, only to discover that the child only noticed the insect in the grass or the dog at a person’s feet?. Is the child’s vision a skewed vision? Is it  any less valid than our own?  Are our skills of observation so blinkered, that we forget to look further than the obvious?

  1. Children are definitely more open to “skewed” perspectives than adults. This may be the result of age and responsibility. As you grow older, you see the bigger picture more easily, while for children the present moment is all thay exists. You’re right; it might benefit us to try fitting a new lens on our cameras every once and awhile and viewing the world as we did when younger. There are wonders everywhere, but the Big Bad Adult Reality often shrouds them.
