Day 11: Eyes

Eye certainly express emotions. As a counselor, there are times, clients will not look at me or anyone for that matter. Fear, shame, guilt, uncomfortable, timid, anger etc.

We are in a society where a lack of eye contact is “normal.” It does not have to be normal. We can change that, but getting social and being more friendly and open to other people. We seem to focus on the differences of others and needing to prove our individual point instead of learning about others’ viewpoints. Social media has contributed to the lack of eye contact and the need to post how “wonderful life really is.” But it’s just that a post, it is a second of some ones’ life captured. But look into their eyes, look into their soul and find out more about a person. That is how we can change.

Happy Day

Day 10: Childhood Memory

Hot air balloons, birds and butterflies and growing up in the country. These are some of my drawings on card stock of the memories. This challenge was a photography challenge, but I am including my art as a voice to the challenge.

Growing up in the country I was around the beauty of nature, the birds singing and seeing plenty of butterflies. There were times in August there would be hot air balloons going over our home. I still dream of riding in a hot air balloon.

Happy Day
