  • I've looked at this photograph a lot. It's cute isn't it - especially that boy looking between two girls (a festival in Nainital, India). Well taken Remco!

    Hmmmm is that it, "cute"?

    I thought about it and wondered if this boy, looking at the world past others, and restricted by others, is who we are in life - me even?

    That we dont see the world as it really is, but through the conditioning and interpretations of others. The people in our past, especially our parents, restricting our view of the world.

    And is it simply people that limit our view? What about the knowledge we gain in life, especially at schools, colleges etc. Is that knowledge, experience, that wisdom of oldies like me, really limiting our view and experience of the world?

    Are we all like that boy? Nah silly talk - have another glass of wine.

    Remco. BSc, BEc, MBA, etc.
