In watching the response to the Oscars online (no I didn’t watch, sorry), I was amused by the wide array in reaction. I was expecting more of the “wow did you see that dress?” I also thought I might see more posts that reflected “what a great performance by…”
But I didn’t see a lot of that (at least not in my feed).
What I saw was two totally different responses to acceptance speeches. One went like this:
“What a great platform to make a difference.”
Another went like this:
“Our Government is clearly run by the Hollywood Elite. Too much politics in their speeches.”
I don’t know who is right. Nor do I really care. But it always amuses me that two people can see the same thing and have such viscerally different responses.
I think people tend to see the thing they are looking for. What will you try and see today?
