The other day someone shared this great quote from Freddie Mercury that really spoke to me. I’ve found several versions of the quote.
What that means is that what he meant when he wrote whatever it was, and what the listener/reader gets out of it or interprets it as, may be two completely different things, and that’s fine. It means, if you see it, it’s there for you in that way that you see it, but it does not mean that your interpretation is necessarily (correct) what he ( or any writer/artist) meant or was thinking or feeling. The subjective interpretation of literature and art. There are things that are very specific, there are other things that are… beauty in the eye of the beholder? I think this is a good disposition to maintain with regard to such things.
