I hate it too, this whole “perception is reality.” Why can’t my reality be everyone else’s reality. If everyone had the same perception, then we would live in a very boring world. However, perception can be skewed: Something that is completely innocuous in action, can seem quite the opposite to someone else. Is there aContinue reading “Perception”

The Norm

I live in the Portland Oregon area, and it would seem that we are a progressive city. We have gay rights rallys, black lives matter rallys, indiginous people rallys, and we host one of the largest fleet week celebrations – every window and yard has the equality flag proudly displayed.
