Speck

I have a speck in my eye. Literally inside my eye. It is one of the floating things you see when you look at the clear blue sky. There are many other specks in my eyes that float around, but this one is prominent. It is dark unlike the other specks and it is bigger too.

I see this speck. It moves when I move my eyes. It goes up. It goes down. And left. And right. It is there. It annoys me.

I look at the mountain before me. Beautiful and green. Bluish too? Cloud-capped peaks. A sliver of white tucked in its folds. A waterfall. A portion of the mountain spotlighted by a beam of sunlight.

I have a choice. To focus on the ever present speck.

Or to drink in the beauty of the mountain.

I cannot do both, for one always clouds the other.

hm... I dunno - there is no general answer for that question... may be for some, it may be better to focus on speck but for some, it may be good to drink the expanse of mountains...

www.govisitadoctor.com? or know that you have a spot where all the nerves of the eye join and there are no recepters and everyone has a spot in the middle of the vision of each eye that is blind.

I know the feeling. So often the dark little spots cloud the whole view!

hey bungi! Where have you disappeared to?

xh - But i do think we lose the big picture because we fuss about the small speck. We do need to look beyond...

Mimi - Unfortunately, it is inside my eyeball... And i'm visiting my home. And that is why i am bit slack in writing...

Ryan - I did expect someone to say that i might need to get that checked!

Sandy - :-)
