Day 14 – Can You See What I See?

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller

Helen Keller was my hero when I was a little girl, I first read about her when I was in 1st grade. As a child I could not fathom being blind and deaf, not able to communicate. As an adult I still have trouble imagining living in that dark, silent world.

But then Annie Sullivan came along and put light into Helen’s dark world. She taught her to communicate. Miss Sullivan was a bold, determined soul, herself barely able to see. But she persevered. Helen persevered. These two women have always had my upmost respect and admiration.

What if you couldn’t ever see the lines in a leaf, the glow of the sky, a warm orange and pink sky during sunset, the smile of a child, the beauty of a tree, the minuscule legs of an ant? What if you couldn’t hear the sound of birds chirping, Beethoven’s masterpieces, the soothing sound of a dishwasher, the sweet melody of a toddler laughing?

But Helen was right, the most beautiful things in the world live in our heart, our soul, our oneness with the world.

I am so blessed.

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture

I had guesses of surgery stitches, stitches from a sweater, a leaf, and a moth, but the picture was of the section of the trunk of my Crepe Myrtle tree.
