Our Incomplete Pictures

The imagery of a picture “speaks a thousand words” is common in our language. Video and pictures have captured both the hearts and minds of all of us on social media. It’s what we, more readily, pay attention to. They have overtaken the written word. Yet the pictures I refer to in the title, are the incomplete ones we discover as we learn new things.
