    I did see the gorilla but only once it was in the middle, i didn’t see it enter the group or the black team member leave, or the color change of the curtain. It makes me wonder how much i would’ve caught if i wasn’t focused on counting the number of ball passes. The pass i missed was when i noticed the gorilla.
    But i definitely see where bias applies to this exercise. The focus on counting ball passes is like having bias and leaves you focused on one thing to the point where you miss SO MUCH MORE. Very good exercise… eye opening.

    I’ve seen the gorilla experiment video before so I caught the gorilla but not the lady with black T-shirt leaving the scene or curtain color change.

    The monkey video made me wonder what all I’ve missed in my life. I like your comment: observing without bias. Sounds like a good life skill to develop and applying it wider than just gardening, to observe without bias (ego). Love it !

    I love just sitting and watching the animls and plants in the forest or even at the local drainage ponds. if you sit quiet enough wild birds will actually land on you or things like dragonflies. If you are as calm as my daughter you can go a whole walk with a dragonfly resting on your finger

    I have never been a very observant person. In fact, it is an ongoing joke between my me and my partner. I’ve always said that I hope I never witness a crime because I will be the worst witness. This is something I will definitely need to work hard on every day. I have noticed that I am slightly more aware of nature, especially edges, since I began this course. I will definitely work more diligently, from now on, on my observation skills!
