There are a host of images floating about today to remind us of the Woodstock event in 1969.


This is an iconic one. But my focus is the cameraman. He is seeing a different view – Hendrix from his left side and the photographer of this image. The same moment defined differently. And Hendrix himself – what does he see behind his closed eyelids?

Every moment in time means a different thing to every person on the planet. We all react to that given moment and two people watching say the same scene will play things out quite differently, if not in a physical sense then maybe in a thinking sense.

Before reacting or engaging today take an instant to consider what the other person saw and how their interpretation of and in the moment might have been different. Adjust your reaction.
