Image used with Kind Permission, Kristin Granger – Gratitude in All.
As my morning browsing took a new turn , I saw this image. It reminded me of how things used to be, when younger we were encouraged to look away and not look others in the eyes. Whenever we walked together his eyes averted to the floor, as to cause no conflict with others, not meeting their gaze as they passed, in case they might think badly of him. (I never asked for what, afraid of what darkness might come from his mind) He missed out on what was around him for so long, became sad, withdrawn and introverted, or was he always that way. It is one of the reasons why I rebelled and have something to say to him now “Yes, Look up see it and smile. Relish in the beauty that surrounds you before it is gone.”
