Perspective

If you've never seen this cartoon, may I suggest you see it first before I begin:

I find there are many ways of looking at perspective— but being able to look at both the small details and the big picture is quite a challenge…

Oh everything comes in its own special size
I guess it can be measured by where you put your eyes
It looks big when you're close
And it looks smaller back a bit
That's about the size of it.

Funny how we seem to be trapped in our own little world. We tend to see only ourselves and never look around to see what may be out there. We're too afraid to look at the vastness of things…

Oh the big becomes the little
When you see it back a bit
The huge becomes the dinky
Which is just the opposite
Of the larger that gets smaller
It never seems to fit
That's about the size of it.

But knowing that everything has perspective helps one to measure up (or down)— and put you on the correct plane in order to see how everything sees through their eyes…

That's about the size
It's where you put your eyes
That's about the size of it.

Where do you fit in with perspective? Do you find it difficult to "see" what others see? Are you able to see both the big picture and the small details— at the same time?
