The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears
Native American proverb – the Minquass
Tara announced Eyes as the prompt for this week’s The Gallery and I immediately thought of going to my nan’s and taking a shot, like the above, of her eyes. Eyes that have watched and looked and seen for 92 years but both twins went down with a sick bug one after the other and then I got it too so that blew that idea out of the window! So here I am close up and In Yer Face.
I’m pretty critical of myself, I see those lines around the edges but I refuse to let them make me sad, life goes on and I can’t stop it so let’s just get on with it. Would I do botox if I had the money? I’m not sure I would. The idea of injecting a poison into my face freaks me out a bit to be honest, tell you what give me loads of money to call my own and then I’ll tell you truthfully what I think on that matter :D
These eyes have laughed a lot, they’ve also cried a lot and I need to wear glasses to see long distance which actually need updating, (note to self) and no I will never be tempted to wear contact lenses, I’m very squeamish. The thought of putting my finger in my eye…well I can’t bring myself to think a about it let alone do it.
My mother has beautiful green eyes – I didn’t inherit them and my late father, may his soul rest in peace, had stunning blue eyes which he failed to pass on to me too but I’m happy with my lot only they’re a bit indescript…grey? Blue? Green?
And the fact my top eyelids are starting to droop is really annoying me now, let’s review that Botox decision again…
I’m also linking up with Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe Thursday which I haven’t taken part in almost a year, this week’s letter is I – and I’m entering with the title ‘I’ as in me, little old me (or Eye, if I’m cheeky)….I’m looking forward to seeing who I bump into.
