Thinking Out Loud


I've been told over the years that I can be naive at the best of times.


I think it's due to the fact that I don't always see the 'whole picture'.


I am getting better at delving a little deeper into the 'matter' as I grow older.


And you know what? The more I get to know and see, the better I am able to respond.


Guess this isn't Rocket Science by any means.


It sure can make life a lot simpler.


Seeing more clearly can certainly change one's perspective.

    2. Yep, you don't get more sophisticated than me. As I sit here typing and drinking coffee from a mug that was just sitting on the counter. God only knows what was in it last!!!

  2. What people call naive, I call trusting!

    Love the pics that go so well with the words.

    1. Thanks Fiona! Yes, the photos were just 'looking' for some words!

  3. Don't we need both kinds of people in this world - those who see the big picture and those who concentrate on the finer points?

    1. We sure do need both. Can you imagine if all of us were the same?!

  4. There is a need for both kinds of people and it's OK to be the trusting one, as long as someone else isn't trying to deceive.

    1. That's true Stew. Sometimes a trusting person is easy prey.

  5. I'm the same way, and experience that comes with age, can be a good teacher, can't it?

    1. It sure can Kim. I do find the older I get, the more I realize that I have accumulated a lot of information compared to, say, my young nieces and nephews OR even Mark above! lol

  6. One definition of naive is the absence of artificiality. Surely that's a good thing.

  7. I too have been called naive many a time. Sometimes I don't think it has to do with not seeing the whole picture but having a kind heart, wanting the best and giving the benefit of a doubt where most don't dare to. Experience does help, I find. I still say, keep an open heart and open mind.
