I found when I had told this story here that I had never told it before — not like this.  We find the opening when what needs to be talked of is a stronger voice than that of our own hesitation.  There is a special kind of work that occurs at the intersection of courage and vulnerability.  I spoke from that place here.

The Why of Glasses

I missed my glasses.

Folly to mourn healing of the cranium, the return of equilibrium in the timing of an eye’s focus, no more headaches.  No need.

But I missed them over and over, magic blue glasses. Instant focus not of the eyes but of the mind. Perched on my head top announcing my greatest strength and weakness: you read too much. Sexy glasses for looking through and under and over. Sat-on, slept-in, dropped, re-bent, lost and found. Scholar’s badge along with the inky fingers, thesis knee and the dent in the side of the first joint of the middle right finger.

I wanted them back, silent messengers.

They said, “I’m reading.” They said, “Quiet.” “This is serious,” they said, “Come back later.”
