Forgive me for using an image for the second time. I hope it’s the first time(?) Can’t promise it’ll be the last!
The first post using these two (a piece about encouragement) can be checked out here
I like this one, these two beautiful, colorful parrots. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I like looking for the additional meaning behind a photo- behind any piece of art, actually- and it doesn’t have to be mine. I’ve checked out plenty of your (meaning YOU, the WordPress Collectiva) work with hopes of seeing into your psyche, hoping to uncover ‘what else’ you may have meant, but didn’t say in your art. It’s my overactive imagination. It is- I just can’t help it and to be honest, I don’t really want to!
All of the above wording brings me back to this parrot photo! I chose it this SECOND time because it got me to thinking (even more) about the art of communication. I consider it an art in the sense that it demands constant refinement, continual reworks, (reblogs?), and revisions to get right…
I believe in communication, but will be the first to tell you I am not always the best at it. Blogging helps as does all the creative work I undertake. I can express myself freely and enjoy the expressions of others. I can, in the midst of conversation with others refer to either something I’ve expressed previously or something bought to my attention at an earlier time to get a point across or help someone else get theirs across.
Communication between family members, friends, co-workers, what have you- it works best when the lines of said communication are kept open. I say always leave a little free space in your heart and mind for the opinions, feelings, thoughts, ideas of others to matter, to mean something more. Give this space to others and you just might find others willing to do the same for you.
