Truism

Edmund Wilson via I Love Reading Books via Cathy Ruggiero

 

This is true whether we’re talking about books or movies, seeing an exhibit at a museum, enjoying a state fair, etc. We each see and experience things through the lens of our own lives, our own experiences. I love talking about a book with another person who has also read it, asking what they thought of the book, what they liked, disliked, what they ‘got’ from it, would they read another one, etc. Since my experiences change, each time I reread a favorite, my ‘take’ is a bit different. What a wonderful life we lead!
