A little change in perspective can mean a huge change in understanding …

When I was a young child my father pointed to a solitary house on a hill and asked me what colour it was. I replied that it was obviously white. He told me that it was surely white, on the side that I could see, but I couldn’t be certain it was white on all four sides - so he made me run up there and check it out. That was my very first lesson in ‘getting a different perspective’ and a brief foray onto the landscape of deduction and reasoning.

I always try to look at things from as many angles/perspectives as I can … in an effort to get the fullest possible picture.
