Imagine a World - Perspectives from The Artist's Road
Imagine a World
As we think about what a challenging and eventful year 2022 has been, our thoughts converge on two things: how big and full of surprises this world is; and, how varied and sometimes in opposition the differing perspectives and realities we humans inhabiting it have. And, it occurs to us, once again, that what any of us thinks is reality is, in large part, wishful and possibly imaginative thinking. We all look out from where we stand and judge the world by our positions on it. Some have lofty views, unencumbered by inconvenience and rife with free time. Others look out from the obligations of family and career, which may leave precious little free time to consider much else. Still others have to scrap for every morsel and may live in a dangerous environment, so their world view is necessarily limited to daily survival. There are so many different points of view in the world that it is amazing that we can ever come together to agree on anything, even a stop sign.
