Seeing Different

I was just thinking (okay, that goes without saying) -- ever notice how sometimes the sky, when you look at it upside-down, looks like the sky reflected in a puddle?  Complete with ripples from a soft breeze?

Didn't think so.

If you stepped into that upside-down sky, would your foot get wet?  Would you keep sinking in all the way to where the birds flit about?

Sometimes, if we pay close attention, we might see our characters in a way that changes them and ourselves at the same time.  And our characters might have the opportunity to see each other in a new light; it could change their entire world, opening up new possibilities for them and for our novels.

Because even the sky has two sides.
