I have always gravitated toward people
that are older, wiser...stories to share...eccentric!
Walking through an old barn during a
horrible thunder storm...this older woman asked me,
"Can you feel the eyes watching you?"
Well...I was ALREADY OVER THE TOP!
She didn't need to freak me out any further
than the pounding thunder, hail and constant flashes!
My hair stood on end!
I will never forget the scary moment & that was
before I went to horror flicks with my friends
just so they could hear me scream!
Well...above is a photo of what she was referring to.
She was a carver...and LOVED knots. Said they
looked like beautiful eyes...it was her attempt
to calm me while trapped in a toothpick-strength barn.
We went around with a flash light & decided
which eyes looked like those we knew...
On SUNNY DAYS I notice knots & if they
somehow look like eyes...
I took the above photo at
Genesee Country Village~ New York State.
So pretty, warm...funny how whenever you
see certain objects, smell certain scents~
memories flood in of a person or place...
Memories linger of her quirkey ways & make
me smile from time to time.
Hope your Sunday is lovely~
