seeing and then some

As i type this post, I am listening to the Ugandan Artiste Exodus...

This crossed my mind a couple of days ago and thought it worthwhile to share my thoughts...
"So many times, what you are looking at is not what you actually see"
There is something about vision, seeing and perception. They are related and can stand independent of each other in different contexts.
I was walking passed the flagship Selfridges Store, and you would know that the store has very creative and interestingly arranged merchandise on their shop windows. Shop windows are the invitation cards without the print

So many ideas are borne from seeing as well as perceiving and to an extent a level of vision, to get the message across, people have to see something - the essence of visual merchandising and adverts in many occasions.

The people who would laugh with you, and smile at you, and even share their joys with you... while you listen to that soundtrack from Disney's Aladdin 'Friend like me'

sometimes one just has to 'chair up' and listen to 'California' by Phantom Planet and the theme song of the O.C
or just keep whistling those other happy tunes...
