Both sides

November 27, 2007

The lesson that keeps getting pounded into me this year, both in my role as a departmental chair, but also serving on this jury, is that it is SOOO important to hear both sides of every story. Many of us go through life believing that X is true, but have never heard or were never open to hearing the reason why X is NOT true. Our lives are filled with little zeroes and ones: I love this; I hate that; This is true; This is false; and so on. When I re-evaluate something and switch a zero to a one, my brain kind of tickles. It can set off a chain reaction of similar events: oh! If this is now true, then this must be false, this must be false and this must be true! A ha!
