Take a Word - Two


Many years ago I was a member of Toastmasters, and wrote a speech entitled "What We See is What We Get".   The concept was that how we perceive ourselves has a great deal to do with what we achieve.  This piece for this week's Take a Word challenge is meant to illustrate that thought.  Background and elements are credit to Create Wings Designs.  Image is a freebie acquired long ago.  Thanks for visiting me!

Wonderful piece, Bev. I'm reminded of a line from the Talmud: We don't see the world the way it is, we see the world the way we are.

And I love Electra's comment. I'm not familiar with that quote, and am going to make a note of it.
