Shut Eye

Sometimes don't you just want to close your eyes? Why is it that the mere action of closing an eyelid can bring peace or calm? Are we really blocking out the bad stuff just because we can't see it? I'm not sure, but I know several times a day I like to sit back and close my eyes, close the rest of the world out, and just exist - inside myself. Sometimes you can see more clearly when your eyes are not open at all. Happy HNT!

    Made me think of the old familiar "Dust in the Wind".

    I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
    All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity.

    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.


    Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

    Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

    Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
    It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

    Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

    Again, I love the way you see things and draw them out.

    Sometimes when I drink way too much, I have no choice. My eyes just close on their own. I always hope it doesn't happen before I sit or lay down.

    interesing insight...no pun intended. I think closing our eyes allows us to block out the distractions around us and enjoy the silence once in a while

    Looks like the eyes were the focus of a couple of HNT photos this week. And as always, you have wonderfully expressive words to go with the pictures.

    And yes, since you've been naughty you will get some handcuffs in your stocking this year. And maybe some sexy stockings to go in your stocking as well...

    HHNT!
