What Don't you See?


Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.
As they lay down for the night,
Holmes said: "Watson, look up into the sky and tell me what you see."
Watson said: "I see millions and millions of stars."

Holmes: "And what does that tell you?"
Watson: "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Theologically it tells me that God is great and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"
Holmes: "Somebody stole our tent."

Lesson: It is always easier to see what is in front of us than to notice that which is missing. All of the physical attractions of the world are "dangled" in front of our eyes. We see the new cars on the roads, we see the latest fashions on others, we see all of the advertisements. What don't we see? What we don't see is what is missing - solutions and exceptions.
