A lot of thoughts popped into my head simultaneously with this week’s topic and here are my top two…..
There is hardly something that is more often distorted than the spoken word…. you mean something and it is understood as something totally different…..and that leads to a series of explanations and clarifications…..and yet another round of distortions.
The written word comes a close second, especially that of the spiritual/religious kind (may be this tops the list). It has been distorted to mean different things to different people and sometimes distorted to be an instrument of violence than of peace.
And then this second image…this was clicked last winter while on our way to Jasper national park at Sunwapta falls. The water has distorted and formed the land with its sheer force. But here the water itself is distorted as it freezes on the surface although the flow continues beneath.
