Perception is everything. We trust our eyes to tell us the story.
We determine a person’s honesty and how trustworthy they may by what we discern upon looking into their eyes. We watch others reactions in order to perceive their motives and feelings and our eyes give us clues to an individual’s mood. And truly it happens literally in the blink of an eye.
How often we are touched and sincerely moved, completely undone when peering into the eyes of a loved one we find tenderness reflected there. A moment of panic or doubt consumes us as we share something valuable and close to our hearts with another and we are suddenly calmed, their approval and acceptance untold, wordless, but completely understood.
How wrenching it can be when we peer intently at another and find the depths of pain or sadness reflected there, well hidden, but for their eyes which tell us a deeper unspoken story.
Eyes have specific appeal. We write romantic sonnets poetry and stories about eyes.
We enjoy the beauty of our surroundings, pictures, or art. Yet oddly enough we close our eyes when listening as a beautiful poem is read aloud, or picture a loved one while reading something particularly profound in a letter they wrote, or even when listening to music as it conjures up pictures in our mind. Pictures we created with our eyes and wish now to recall.
A universe of colour in which to play
Refreshed renewed each and every day
Awash with blues pinks greens and golds
Happily our picturesque landscape unfolds
Wrapping us in such delight
Our hearts could burst so filled with light
Then someone yells take off those rose coloured eyeglasses
That is not what is seen by the masses
Alas I am blind and from memory paint
The world in all it’s glory shall remain
I am happiest here I proclaim
An amazing word that encompasses so many variables. It can be a person who lives for drama and wears you out or can relate to a dramatic event in our life that suddenly becomes heightened.
What is more delightful than a dramatic sunrise, or sunset or perhaps waves crashing on the shore in a dramatic storm. What of an amazing mountain range that compels your eye to dramatic snow covered peaks.
Dramatic lighting in a photograph (whether it relates to an object, scene, or person) can instantly change your perception of any of the above.
Dramatic art, theater, music, plays, songs, novels, or words; whatever the relationship, dramatics captures our immediate attention thereby invoking an instant response. Dramatics affects our thoughts, emotions, or beliefs impacting us either negatively or positively.
However it affects our emotions, it can make an obvious and appreciable even significant and perceptible difference in meaningful ways and enrich our lives.
