lilliputian-hallucination-lilly-who

Lilliputian as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary means, ‘small’, ‘miniature’, ‘petty’. Put together, Lilliputian hallucination refers to abnormal visual perception. Things, people or animals seem smaller than they would be in real life. Quick scenarios where this came up would be the “little people” who lived on the island of Lilliput in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver Travels, 1726. Also, Alice in Wonderland and the Israelite description of their grasshopper like look beside the giants living in Jericho.It is okay to use the word Lilliputian when something is actually small or tiny or little. You may only come off…

mistake-work-next

I know that sometimes it is hard to admit mistakes but is it not liberating when you do so? Does it not feel like a burden has been lifted off your shoulders and you can finally walk freely?Everyone makes mistakes. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.

The beauty of the casket reminds me of how much we conceal beautiful things. We then open up after our loved ones have died. Eulogies are wasted on the dead.I have always hated funeral services not because of the sight of the dead body or cries of the mourners.

twisted-values

On one of my photo-walk sessions to the market, my attention was drawn to this footwear seller. His goods were all varying quality and prices. This shot reminded me of a story I once heard. A group of mischievous college students agreed to rob a supermarket just for the fun of it. They then came together to think of a good plan, but none of the plan covered how they were going to transport the stolen goods without a car or any alternative transportation.  Finally, one of them then suggested something that made them feel like they had just…
