"I've been letting my mind wonder at night. My thoughts should have a curfew." Am Kidd

I used to believe that comprehension began right there;
that what eyes failed to make sense of, was insensibility.
Every time a picture offers a thousand words, they claim the first to know;
and if it were not through them, how would we fall for the beauty of a look?

Then I learned that deception was easiest to enter thereabout;
that the pair I’ve had might lie, at times like when they suggest the bigness of near and smallness of far.
When a picture offers a thousand words, they may be the first to be deceived;
and if it were not through them, why have many hearts ached at the tyranny of the skin deep?

Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
