This is one of my favorite cartoons by the Turkish cartoonist Selcuk Erdem. I saw it again the other day and it made me think about how most of us don’t have the ability to see the reality around us because of our subjectivity. Because our “horn” gets in the way… Our feelings, our prejudices, our habits, our baseline perceptions… We never realize it’s our “horn” in the middle of the picture which blurs our vision and blocks our perception. Sometimes, you need to move out of your country, your culture or your comfort zone and be in a completely different place to be able to see clearly…
I put together a few more of my favorite cartoons for today! Enjoy!
“It was blocking my view so I had it cut.”
“I don’t know why but I hate Mondays.”
“Our condolences! We heard about your loss. We are very sorry.”
“OMG! I’m flying!”
“Are you not gonna go cock-a’doodle-doo?”
“Let her go! If she comes back, she’s yours.”
