What Doesn’t Make Sense

September 17, 2011

During a morning run this week I came across this sign for a golf course.  I quickly identified the golf bag and clubs on the right and the red rock outcropping on the left, but I couldn’t quite make out what that white item was attached to the cliff – it didn’t make sense to me.  As I continued to study what didn’t make sense, suddenly the white thing became a shirt on a man and the red rock cliff became a couple.  It all made sense to me as I finally made sense out of the part that didn’t.  In our lives there are often things that don’t make sense.  Take a closer look at those things, and often the very things that don’t make sense to us bring the whole picture into context.

In science, mistakes always precede the truth.
