If you look at something upside-down
You can notice things that you didn’t notice before
When you were looking at it right-side-up.
You probably know that.
Maybe when you were young
You also walked around the house with a mirror under your nose,
(I may have been prompted by Betsy, Tacy and Tib)
And imagined yourself to be in another world-
One where ceiling fans are on the floor,
And there’s basically no clutter anywhere
And stepping through a doorway requires a big jump.
Or maybe you liked hanging upside-down on monkey bars
Or doing flips and seeing the world rapidly change around you.
I wasn’t that kid,
But someone was.
It’s difficult for me to draw things upside-down
When I’m seeing them right side up.
Have you tried that?
I think it’s hard.
