My beloved's eye, what are you telling me?


A friend's eye is a good mirror.

Great moment captured! I guess the eyes of a child are the most clear of all mirrors.

totally second you :) these eyes are my nephew's eyes, the youngest boy in the family. He has such dark deep eyes, he can smile with his eyes.

and more than that, I really think he gets what my sister feels. his eyes smile when she laughs (he laughs as well, my sis has a contagious laugh). I think he as a bit of me as well, now that I've been around more time w him. even though I don't have children, I feel my nephews as my children, I love them so so much that yes, their eyes must be the best mirror. I have to make sure they get a good picture, though.

Yes, it's amazing how children explore the world around them with their deep eyes. There's a quote by Walt Streightiff: "There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million."
I think people in a way lose that depth of an eye as they grow older.

sadly, i agree w you. that deepness tends to get blurred with sprinkles of sadness. when i grow old (er) i really want to keep looking at my surroundings w curiosity and willingness to see more and more.
