It’s a small world

Or so it would seem that it’s a small world. At times my sense of place seems completely separate from everything and everyone else. Then I feel that everything is connected.

This usually happens when I see people. Have you ever noticed how everyone looks like someone else? Is that how we deal with our own reality? By associating everything we see in context to everything we already know?

Minneapolis - 10.26.06
In that way the world does seem small. I see people all the time and get that “How do I know that person?” feeling. It happened 2 times last night while I was enjoying sushi with some friends (sidetrack – I love love sushi – I have to put that in for good measure).

I know Minneapolis is a fairly small town when you think about it. I always run into the same strangers. Does that still make them strangers?

    the world reflecting back at us–revealing ourselves to ourself

    Pip says: (10:33:29 AM)

    Seeing says: (10:33:52 AM)
    we are the inside looking out and the outside looking in

    Seeing says: (10:33:55 AM)
    all at once

    Seeing says: (10:34:01 AM)
    we are behind the view

    Seeing says: (10:34:14 AM)
    we ARE the view

    Pip says: (10:34:20 AM)
    yes! it’s all in the left pane of the picture – giving that sense of space – of voyeurism but more than that

    Seeing says: (10:34:41 AM)
    and it’s perceived as reversed

    Pip says: (10:34:48 AM)

    Seeing says: (10:35:04 AM)
    as if we are looking thrrough it not at it

    Pip says: (10:35:04 AM)
    it’s sort of questioning in viewpoint. pensive

    Pip says: (10:35:26 AM)
    hmmm. i like that

    Pip says: (10:35:41 AM)
