Eyesight
Saturday, October 6, 2007
I often feel as though I look at things longer than they deserve. I haven't yet deciphered the wood pattern on my dresser, and am beginning to think there's no answer or rhythm to it. How many more times can I stare into a picture upon my wall and wonder how hard it must be to water the plant considering how oddly-shaped the artist painted the planter, or how easily I would be distracted from my task by the cool and moist, blurred blue presence of Mt. Fuji through my window. If I took a few steps further, would it become clear? Like a memory, light has a way of reflecting off of everything in the room and fecundating the walls with the ever-looming presence of Fuji and how blue she and I are.

I can focus on this picture for longer than a rabbit can, but I never asked for this ability. It is not what I need. I wish that light would refuse to bounce off of my wall; angry and indignant, having traveled 149,598,000 kilometers for what? Just to be trapped in a room and bouncing between my eye and a fake planter? I offend the sun each and every second that I continue to debase its exertions for such a trifle. I wish I were a real plant, blind and without question. My life would depend on the presence of the sun. I could take what I need, and turn the rest into something meaningful for what lives around me.

Everytime I read your entry, it makes me feel like I'm reading some kind of literature. But it's a wonderful piece of work seriously. I look forward to reading your entries.

Well, looking at things and thinking about them more saves you from being bored, at least. :P

Normally, I wouldn't recommend an entry that uses the R word (rabbit), but this one was so nicely written

I'm looking foward to reading more of your writings ^.^ It seems like you think too much, but thats never really a bad thing because many people do

It's a good thing to stop & truly EXAMINE the things around us. I'm studying sight in my anatomy class & I take that sense for granted the most! Anyway, nice entry. =)

I have figured you out.
And I must say, this is a pleasant change.
You inspire me to actually think and write about things. I would expand on this, but I could go on for a while, like I almost did.
But that is for some other time and place.
