just don't understand an issue or the issue just wasn't good.
The same issue produces responses saying it was exactly what
they needed or that it was one of the best issues they've read.
Why the difference?
Sometimes, it's just not your mountain.
We all deal with different things.
We have different backgrounds and experiences.
...one looked at an oak tree and saw its beauty and strength.
...another looked at the same tree and recoiled in horror.
Why in horror? Their father was hung from an oak tree.
Same tree, different viewpoints, different experiences.
If we or someone we know isn't dealing with a particular
problem, the solution to that problem is just not that relevant
It's the front door syndrome.
Whenever something is at your front door,
it's far more relevant and important.
When was the last time you thought about how resistant your house
is to an earthquake?
If you live in a city that has never had an earthquake,
you've probably never thought about it.
Let an earthquake hit two miles from your house.
You'll think about it.
The front door syndrome.
If there was a MountainWings issue on earthquakes, how much you
thought of it would largely depend on how close an earthquake
had ever been to you.
Some issues you just may not be facing right now.
It ain't your mountain,
and you don't have to get over it.
