What do you see when you close your eyes?
I remember, as a bored kid in school, elbows on my desk and palms pressing gently against my closed eyes. I enjoyed the patterns of darkness that slowly flowed and changed in the darkness of space.
I realized the other day that I hadn’t seen the darkness behind my eyes in so many years. When I closed my eyes I didn’t see the darkness. I saw the images and thoughts that race through my head like a mad cyclone looking for a trailer park to play with.
Suddenly, after all those years, I noticed the darkness and nebulous patterns flowing again. It is very peaceful. Good to calm the savage mind. I hope I don’t forget it again.
