To me, “blur” is reading between the lines. It’s shoving everything so close together you can’t see the original picture anymore. The original picture is so fuzzy, you can’t even recognize it anymore. This forces you to look at the picture differently. You notice nuances that you wouldn’t have ordinarily noticed. You may also see a different picture, entirely. This is particularly helpful in life. When things are bad, you “zoom out”, and see how things aren’t what they seem. The situation you’re in isn’t “bad”, it’s different. Blur seems to have a negative connotation, in my opinion. If I asked ten people what they thought of when they heard the word “blur”, a majority of them would say they think of not being able to see clearly. Some might even use words such as obscure, or blurry to help explain what they mean. However, it’s not a bad thing. When things get blurry, we see something we haven’t seen before. What we’re looking at isn’t actually what we’re looking at. But who’s to say that blur is good or bad? To some, blur is good and to others it’s bad. It all depends on who you talk to, and the experiences they’ve had. Isn’t that what all of life is about?
