Fragmented, broken pieces of myself have formed into a moving creative pattern
Psychology of perception ground up learning theory would state that I am a product of experience. What I see is because of what I already know. Having learned to finally tweak the vision of those broken parts into some sort of manageable recurring design for others to view plays on this well-accepted theory. However, what is perceived still remains subjective.
Events can turn the environment causing a new realm of stability, slightly shifting the lens, and strikingly new patterns emerge. Consider too that each repetitive pattern is continually morphing into a modified version of itself until it becomes completely unrecognizable in the metamorphosis, retaining only some of its original colors.
We can all recognize the beauty in the constantly changing visions of a kaleidoscope. But can we accept change in ourselves?
Vivid colors surround me daily, awakening a deeply-rooted purpose to express my feelings and reflections in the form of artistic creation. I cannot deny the profound effect of colorful displays of inspirational images on my heart. Motivation to share and create is born from these visions of delight. Flowers, birds, and trees,
As in the turn of a kaleidoscope, creative development often remains a work in progress and a mystery. A journey refined by every step. Joy is felt from our individual perspective of each design as seen today without our eyes on tomorrow or our hearts left in the struggles of yesterday.
It is for each of us to appreciate the constantly changing visions of our inner kaleidoscopes.
For what we think to be true, is often only true because of how we see it.
