About The Girl
- NON SEQUITURS UNITE
- California, United States
- Not-so-silent observations that splinter my conversations. Harnessing the steady flow of random thoughts and musings that continuously interrupt my daily conversations. Paired here with my artwork and photographs from recent adventures. Non sequitur (pronounced \ˈnän-ˈse-kwə-tər\)- a response which, due to its apparent lack of meaning relative to its context, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing.

THE WAY WE SEE
“The way that we see things today does not have to be the way we saw them yesterday. That is because the situations, our relationships to them, and we ourselves have changed in the interim. This notion of constant change suggests that we do not have to be discouraged.” T.K.V. Desikachar
How does my perspective affect how I see the world?
My attitude most definitely filters and transforms the events and my subsequent reactions. Distance and time shift my viewpoint...extending, expanding, distorting the edges like a fish eye lens.
Erasing the details and substituting generalizations, washes of feeling in their place. Like a familiar, well-worn chair our memories begin to conform to the frequent silent repetition of our story. Our internal dialogue creates its own mental pathway.
Straying perhaps slightly or at times grossly from the truth of the experience. A navigation system gone awry.
At times wishing I could simply remove this lens and swap out for another...is it that simple?!
And you? How do you shift your perspective or change your point of view?
