I think that such an interesting thing to think about is the way that everyone else perceives them. For instance, today I was sitting and watching as parents and kids and staff members at the camp I’m working at intermingled. I realized that there were at least three different perspectives. The staff were still watching the kids making sure that they were presenting their projects in the same familiar space we had been in all day. The parents were coming in not knowing entirely what to expect and encountering the amazing work that their kids accomplished. The kids were excited to see their parents after a week. It’s just interesting that I knew the kids and the kids knew me and I didn’t know the parents and they didn’t know me, it was almost as if the kids served as a bridge between us. Isn’t that fascinating? When you’re in one shoe, sometimes it’s hard to imagine how the other one feels.
“What we experience is our own concept of things. That’s why no two people see quite the same world, and why, in many cases, different people see such different worlds. To put it another way, we make our own world by the way in which we think: for we really do live in a world of our own thoughts” Emmet Fox
