You're very welcome. I'm trying to use this LJ as a place for putting stuff I'm thinking on. This of course being just an offshoot of my general shift to trying to live a more thoughtful life.
We'll see how long this phase lasts. :)
I've often had the same amazement as you mention at the fact that we can manage to communicate at all. Language is such an amazing thing sometimes. What really gets me is when I am talking to a colourblind person I know, and we're talking about something and mention what shade it is and he can identify it properly, but I *know* that's the shade he has trouble with. He's just saying it's some shade of red because he knows that when he sees something that looks like that shade of gray to him, it's really red and his eyes just don't register that. So what we are referring to as "red" he's actually seeing as a certain off-gray. Blows my mind sometimes.
