Understanding

What is understanding?

You reading this is you understanding that I am writing in English, but do you understand why I am writing at all?

This weekend is a mystery to me, and will probably remain that way for a very long time. I have no clue where things went wrong, when I thought things were going so good.

To the parties involved, it may seem like lip service, but truly it is not.

People say, “Where there is smoke, there is fire.” You may be one of those people, but it isn’t true. Where there is smoke, there is something creating smoke. True, it’s typically fire, however, it could just be a smoke machine…or you could me mistaking billowing steam as smoke (northerners get that).

My point is that you had an understanding that smoke meant fire, however, your understanding was wrong. That company of fire fighters is now at the party across the street telling them to take it easy on the strawberry scented smoke.

People have different perspectives, and until you see a situation through their eyes, you’ll never grasp what is going on.

I don’t think I’ll ever see through your eyes.
