No one starts out with an eye patch. It is earned….
When I first saw Dale Chihuly’s art it changed the world for me. Not enough to start a religion or the way I eat, both will never happen, but just knowing it existed opened new possibilities in imagining form and color.
When I first read about Marie Colvin, her dedication to war reporting and to the people surviving it moved the north of my moral compass. Assad ended her life but can’t touch her revelations on humanity. The power……. of just one person with vision and passion.
Both earned the eye patches they chose to wear.
I have two eyes, maybe someday…….
Aye means to agree and commit to something, patch to fix or repair. This Aye-Patch will have to do for now.
