Ambiguity





unique or alone?

What do you
think? Am I unique
or alone?


The beauty of this picture is ambiguity. It portrays two meanings. If you see it from one angle, the colorful flower is alone in the bunch of similar ones. If you see it from another angle, the colorful flower is so unique and special - one of a kind!

If I've to decide which one is right, I'll be confused since both appear true and correct to me. Hence, the ambiguity.


I look for ambiguity when I'm writing because life is ambiguous - Keith Richards

Take advantage of the ambiguity in the world. Look at something and think what else it might be - Roger von Oech

Ambiguity can be frustrating, to be sure. But it can also be intriguing, mysterious and delightful - Unknown

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity - Gilda Radner

Ambiguity: the bastard child of creativity and cowardice - Yahia Lababidi

It all depends on how we look at life. If we look at things positively, we would look at it as something unique. If we look at life as a dull and monotonous routine, it would be lonely.

I agree with the last quote, ambiguity is both creativity and cowardice. I would add indecisiveness to it.

Beautiful on ambiguity. Food for thought! I'd say unique; each one of us is unique in our own way among the rest of our kind.

Hemant said...

Agreeing with you for sure....being unique can also be ambiguous a lot of time..

typewriterpoet said...

yes unique and alone two different things. everyone is unique, and everyone should be alone once in a while. how can you be happy with others if you cannot be happy with your self? this post askes a lot of the reader, and that is wonderful, reading should stimulate the mind, and the conversation. well done!

Rahul Bhatia said...

This is true for most of the things in life. Nothing is perfectly white or black but shades of grey! The same ambiguity that u captured so well, Valli:)

Madan Mohan Saxena said...
