Quote of the day

"I shut my eyes in order to see."
-Paul Gauguin
Sometimes, seeing isn't actually seeing. Sometimes, seeing is seeing with your heart and not with your eyes. Seeing clearly might mean shutting your eyes. Look with your heart-- what do you see? When you look at someone and they look happy, are they really? Look with your heart and you might find that they are sad but trying to be happy for your or someone else's sake. Shut your eyes and listen. Seeing can also be done with your ears. Go outside and shut your eyes. Can you hear birds? Or can you hear the roaring of cars? What do you hear? What do you see that you can't actually see? Use your other 4 senses to see. See with your touch. See with your taste. See with your smell. See with your hearing. And even though it isn't a sense, see with your heart.
