The seduction of black and white thinking
Take a photo. Make it black and white. BAM! It’s art. High contrast is so appealing. It’s minimalist, it’s classy and it’s classic. Black and white thinking can also be super seductive.
We love being able to label things. This thing is good, this one is bad. This is the apocalypse or this is a brand new chapter.
At this moment in time, we have to make peace with the fact that there is a lot we don’t know and there’s a lot we can’t control. Arguably this has always been true, it’s just more obvious now.
We can fight it or accept it. Can you tolerate not knowing what tomorrow will look like? Can you accept the loss of control?
