I often wonder what people see with their eyes, how they see, what they take in, what they hold in their heart as important and true; and sometimes, I wonder what people don't see, what they miss in their hurried, busy-blind life. Once when I was in elementary school, I tied a scarf around my eyes and wandered around my house for an afternoon, falsely blind, bumping into furniture, feeling my way past walls and corners. I wanted to know what it was like to not see, yet at the same time, I never wanted to forsake the sight in my eyes, the way the colors of life blended together. My eyes, how they see, are the thread that binds me to the world; my eyes, they help me make sense of life, help me tap out words across a screen, scribble pictures and tell stories. How I see connects me to the innermost part of my soul.
