Looking and seeing are two different things, don’t you agree? Normally, I don’t look unless I want to see. Someone has to make me want to look first before I turn my head; most times though, I do turn my head but still don’t look.
It takes a lot to make me interested really. It may be because I’m used to boring, I don’t know. Also, I have this quirk. I don’t like looking people in the eye. I’m not comfortable with it and I’ve never really wanted to look people in the eye.
…Which is why it’s the most remarkable thing when I feel compelled to do it, better yet, more incredible when I enjoy doing it; doesn’t happen a lot too, which makes the experience more mind blowing.
For many people, I know it’s easy for them to look; in fact, they love it. They keep on looking and looking and looking. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they are seeing. It’s crazy but people can look for ages and still miss what it is in front of them. I find that interesting. One time, I read that people only see what it is they know. It makes sense.
What color are your eyes btw? Mine is brown, pretty boring if you ask me, I never really thought about them much until a friend pointed out that my eyes are brown but they are really dark. I don’t know if that’s literally or what. I also wear glasses, bad eyesight really, nearsighted with astigmatism. Boo.
So what have you seen today?
