Eyes. Windows to the soul. Windows to the world. Eyes have long been a theme for my art. Then mine began to fail… slowly,… until the time came for a corneal graft, a gift from an unknown donor. I received mine September 17, 2019. I’ve been struggling, but my gratitude is profound.
I’m looking out a stranger’s window with the same curiosity and longing, but nothing is clear yet, except my love for a strangers gift.
I wonder if I’m worthy. Now, this stranger is looking in that window, into my soul. What do they know, what can they see?
I hope to see the beauty, and paint the colors, that would make them happy. And I’ll make my soul worthy of this gift.
It’s an incredible gift!
