Daily Prompt: Denial

Most difficult amongst all our efforts is to try and see things as they really are.  Sounds simple, doesn’t it?  It’s not so simple.  Often when a catastrophe occurs eye witnesses come up with the strangest of recollections of events.  We process what we see in ways that use a baggage of assumptions and preconceptions.  Seeing is just one sense and so as we mix all the sources of information that we have the picture can get sharper or more blurred.   Either way we will fix this result as; our view. 

Is this denial?  Denial of reality.  You get it; I’m channelling my inner Spock.  Half Vulcan – half human.  We are stuck in that world between objectivity, facts and logic and our imagination, emotions and feelings.  I don’t want to deny either.  Let’s just except, to see things as they really are needs a lot more effort than we often give it.
