A word with many meanings, like Outlook, Manner, Pose, Mindset, Posture and Way of behaving.
We learn so much about a person by observation; you don’t have to hear a word to judge someone. We are all guilty of that; No? I am. Sit at a bus stop and watch the world go by. People all get popped into different boxes of “type.”
So look at this photograph what can you tell, even if you don’t know who they are?
They have been asked to pose and smile! Protective arm around the back of the chair. Hold my hand and I will look after you. Gentle, obedient.
“OK, I’m smiling.”
But look closely at the beedy eye stare from the baby, stiff legs of rebellion, lifted head of defiance, pursed little lips, ready to express feelings loudly.
“Get me out of this thing! What are you all looking at!”
I can read two different personalities here. Can you? But then I do have a little inside knowledge so it is a bit unfair. They are sisters; and I had to smile when I found this picture taken many years ago in their Nannie and Gimpy’s garden in Pretoria; because they are just that way today.
One with ‘attitude’, outlook, posture and way of behaving.
The other with ‘Attitude!’, manner, stance, mindset and way of behaving!!
And it takes all kinds to make the world go around.
My picture that screamed Attitude, an A entry for Jenny’s Alphabe Thursday.
