Get some popcorn, enjoy my half-hour movie below:
- Can’t I see what others may see?
It was after the second night’s sighting of The Northern Lights that I asked my traveling party whether their eyes actually saw the green colour of the aurora.
The Northern Lights had romanced with me in silver-grey!
They were surprised. They did see green with their naked eyes.
It’s not colour blindness that I have. It’s a kind of night blindness.
“Reality may be different from what our eyes see,” my aurora tour host, Marek had said on the bus.
I may not be able to change what my physical eyes can see.
Other realities? Other perspectives?
How I see and accept things in the world many times I have the ability to alter.
There is choice.
Choice includes accepting the reality I am faced with, like enjoying the aurora in silver-grey with the aid of another lens to see the true colours.
Choice includes putting in the effort of finding alternate realities, changing my perspective, opinion, mindset and attitude when I need to.
