I hope your month has been
running smoothly? I am hopeful that
this month will continue to yeild good fruits for us all. Let’s be optimistic,
we have great heights to mount and great feats to add to our caps.
Let’s think from the viewpoint of
a driver today, I remember then, when I
was growing up, one of the popular vehicle brands in Nigeria, Peugeot, has just
an external mirror. At some point, other brands added the second mirror which
further beautified cars making it look like two ears. When one is driving, he
learns about how to use the mirror because it aids your decision making. In
fact, caveat exists on a mirror saying, objects are closer than they appear in
the mirror. As a driver myself, I learnt a simple lesson which I intend to
share with you.
Reproduction is when the mirror
shows you what is behind as you drive. With what is viewed, you resolve either
to change your lane, overtake a vehicle etc.
However, one would see that certain objects, when very close to a car,
are not seen through the mirror. This is limiting! Accidents have happened when
such decisions are made haphazardly, especially when the driver of the other
vehicle is on top speed.
Realism is the actual result of your
decision. Every decision comes with a consequence. Realism is clearer and not
blur like what has been reproduced. A realist does not hypnotise; he is factual
to a fault. A realist does avoid sharp mistakes by double checking; doing such,
takes away some embarrassments.
Realism is what you see with your
sight and not what you imagine; it is not assumed; it is not hearsay. Realism
is the outcome that you grapple with after you make a decision. You cannot
afford to depend on reflections, you don’t complain if all reproduced images
fades off. Be true to yourself!
Let’s keep realism at heart and not overbear reproduced images.
Have a great week.
