Point of view.

No two of us have exactly the same point of view.  My “eyes” are skewed as I see the world through a kaleidoscope lens of past experiences, feelings, beliefs, and physical limitations.  Been considering point of view as I form the concept of my next book.  First-person?  Second-person?  Third-person can be perceived as being a factual telling, but even third-person can be skewed by my lens.  Third-person omniscient would mean that I know the thoughts and feelings of all the characters.  Since the main characters are no longer living, I certainly won’t claim that one!  But do we sometimes communicate that way?  Acting as if we are third-person omniscient, instead of squinting through that kaleidoscope.
