To see ourselves as other see us

On my recent trip to York I spotted this pub sign for the Burns Hotel.


Burns (Scotland's national poet) is reflected in the window and it reminded me of some of the words from his famous poem "To A Louse" -
O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
You can read the rest of the poem at the BBC website and hear it read by the actor Robert Carlyle.
Joining with Weekend Reflections.

Love, Liz
