Today I want to limit my words and let the visual imagery do most of the talking and stir up your thinking.

Mini Collage #19 “On Being Transparent, 2”            cSylvia Robertson 2017

I want simply to ask you a few questions to ponder–about the two collages, and about life and people:

  • What does it mean to be transparent?
  • When is it good to be transparent, and when not?
  • In the collages, what is transparent, and what merely appears to be transparent but is only reflecting something that is, or distorting what’s really there?
    • How about in life, regarding the people around you and the world–and you yourself?

May these ponderings enrich your thinking, and your life!

  1. Love these especially. My purpose statement is “encouraging transparency,” and yes, it has its ups and downs…. benefits and risks.

  2. I sometimes find transparency tricky myself, Lynni. At least anymore. I think I used to be much more transparent, but with some people that’s not always a safe thing to be. Lessons in life (sigh).

  3. That is so true. It is a risk. I think it’s an important thing to be, but maybe it’s the idea of casting pearls before swine. I’ve never been especially fond of that phrase, but it’s true. I also love the idea that for believers, when we are truly transparent, then Jesus shines through.
