So, I had something else to write about today, but during a conversation with my sister, I found out something that kind of sent my head spinning. It’s not a deep dark, and it’s not earth-shattering, but it is a bit personal, and it is kind of… I dunno how to put it. Let’s just say that something I held as true for many years I found out is not today, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. So the thing I was going to write about today just isn’t going to happen.
I’m sure this happens to everyone at one time or another. I’ve had the rug pulled out from under me, and believe it or not, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Not this time at least. But even when it’s not a horrible revelation, one still needs time to recover. It’s like going through life believing that the sky is blue, then finding out that it’s actually green. Because your eyes have been seeing it incorrectly. Like these pictures I’m about to share. They’re both the same picture — a screenshot of my game last night — and they’re both beautiful, but the first one is hazy and kind of… I dunno, lacking in detail. But add a few filters and sharpen the contrast and bam! Everything is revealed (and the blue snow comes shining through, I still haven’t figured out what’s causing that).
I didn’t do that much with this picture, like I said, a few filters and I removed the text. I have no idea what’s causing that light in the lower middle part, and I don’t know enough about luminosity masks to remove it. But whatever, the thing I learned today it exactly like these two things. One little bit revealed and now my worldview is much clearer. I just have to wrap my head around it and move on down the road. But my “now” is a bit… overwhelming.
Like seeing color for the first time…
