The Eyes Have It

The gift of sight…

Pilgrim on a Long, Long Journey

“I like you; your eyes are full of language.” Anne Sexton, the late American poet.

“People seldom realise that they tell lies with their lips and truths with their eyes all the time.” Tahereh Mafi, an American author.

It took me years to do better with eye contact. Perhaps my father’s difficult stares were part of the problem.

My spouse’s beautiful, ocean blue eyes may have helped solve the problem. It seems days with more eye contact are better for us, though that could be my simplistic illusion.

Eyes do speak truths. Bearing that burden, they seem to age more quickly than the rest of us. Our eyes continue to have immeasurable value, by the grace of God.
