I've been playing a game called Draw Something on my iPad.
Sort of like Pictionary, you can either play with random people or tag people you know to play with you (as long as they've got the game on one of their devices).
It's really fascinating.
I get a word and try to draw a picture. Then the recipient gets a list of about a dozen letters and as many blank spaces as are in the word and try to guess my word.
Here's where it gets really interesting. I draw something that I believe is a perfectly clear indication of the word. But sometimes people just don't get it. Or they draw me a picture and no matter how hard I try, it doesn't connect.
It's a clear indication of, no matter how hard we try, all our minds think different. Differently? Whatever, we often have a problem communicating.
Its a great way to remember that no matter how clear you think you're being, we all see everything in or own particular way.
And it's a good reminder for me to try to be a lot clearer when talking (or drawing) with people.
If you want to play Draw Something with me, I'm LazyDazeKate.
