The Time-Trampled Face

I was sorting through an assortment of digital pictures on my computer just now (and, yes, the number of files on my computer ending in .jpg would leave you agog) and I ended up looking at a series of pictures taken a year ago today. I wondered if I've really begun to look so very different. Or if I've just been tired lately. Perspective is curious. I remember looking at the pictures when they were taken and thinking how different I looked even then. Something about the eyes. I was ghastly sick that week. But none of that factors in.

Maybe I'm just missing out on opportunities to see what my eyes look like when the sunlight is streaming into them. Pouring in through my corneas and finding its way to my brain chamber.

Isn't it funny how sudden sunlight makes you sneeze?
