On the topic of how different someone's perspective can be... I was driving through Bloomington, Indiana yesterday running some errands. I had my windows down and my radio blaring. At a stop light another car pulled up beside me and he was doing the same thing, only with different music. I looked over to the other side and saw a woman with a discman walking to the bus stop. I wondered what she was listening to. Then my brain went into overdrive. What was she thinking about? I wonder what she thinks about God? I wonder if she is happy because she doesn't look like it. If you get a chance just watch people and realize that in that mind of theirs could be someone completely unlike you. How cool is that?!!!


what is the title of that painting at the end of this post?


Here's some info on that one:

Study of a Young Woman, probably ca. 1665–67
Johannes Vermeer (Dutch, 1632–1675)
Oil on canvas; 17 1/2 x 15 3/4 in. (44.5 x 40 cm)

I had originally thought that was "Girl With a Pearl Earring," but corrected myself in this post.
