I have taken a deep look into perception over the last 24hours.  Last night I drove my daughter into the mountains of West Virginia for a ski weekend with friends.  By the time we reached West Virginia, it was dark and it started sleeting.  Visibility was very bleak on HW 93.  It was a tense drive but we arrived safely.  Today as I was driving back, I was taken aback by how steep the roads were and how difficult the driving was. I was actually scared ( I don’t like heights) and I was at the top of mountains on steep winding roads.  Last night my limited vision gave me a sense of comfort I don’t think I would have had if I had known how steep and narrow the roads were.  My perception kept my fear in check.  The psychology of perception is powerful.
