You See What You Want To See

Wonderful lesson the Harry Nilson's "The Point". Listen to the Rock Man.

"You see what you want to see
and you hear what you want to hear."
It's so true.
We live each day inside our own cocoon. Surrounding us in the materials that comfort us. Familiar items we could do without, but cherish close to us. It's our choice.
And when something unexpected enters our comfort zone, how do we react? 
Fear? Misunderstanding? Anger? 
or acceptance and interest and wonder? 
With this election year, be aware of the newness. 
And it may be important to pay attention to the girl in the football helmet.
