Where Are His Eyes?

Linda G Hills  Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is: “close eyes and point.” When you’re ready to write your post, open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your SoCS/JusJoJan post. 

 

You need to have a voice to sing,

legs so that you can  walk and run

hands to grasp things with

but

you do not need eyes to write.

You don’t have to see to create.

 

In this portrait of Victor Hugo

all you see where his eyes should be

are two pools of darkness.

 

I wonder if his eyes were really that dark

or if the painter was telling us a little story about Victor Hugo.

 

I think his eyes in this painting tell a story about his works of art, his writing, his dedication to his causes weren’t exactly the stuff of comedies. I wonder if he had a sense of humor? What did it sound like when he laughed? Could he laugh? His beloved daughter died by drowning before she was 20 years old. Her husband died trying to save her. I wonder if the sound of his laugh changed after her funeral. I’ll bet it did. How could it not have changed?

e really enjoyed going over this painting, it brought up some great ideas, made me think of the way we react to the world and what happens in it and the mark it leaves on us.

In this case the world left it’s mark on Victor Hugo’s face, it left it where his eyes used to be.

Moscow Mitch Is Your Daddy Now

RDP Friday: President

Just after Barack Obama was elected President some of my , hmmm, people I no longer talk to since January 6th, 2021 , said they didn’t want to discuss politics anymore because now that Obama was President it was ‘all about race’.

However,  they did send me countless links to article about ‘black on black ‘ crimes and lots news stories about people who were identified as crooks or murderers  were also members of  the ‘democrat’ party.

Fast forward to Donald Trump losing his re-election and the BIG LIE he told about a stolen election and then the Insurrection and murder and assault of police officers on January 6th and what do they have to say now?

However, I will not let anyone dampen my enthusiasm about having a new President- and that it was a President I voted for AND he also has two AWESOME DOGS:

The turd in the punchbowl  at this cool party that has been going on since the Election was called for Joe Biden is Mitch McConnell.

McConnell   has jammed up the Senate and basically told everyone who voted for the Senators from  Georgia or supported them to go and f&%k themselves. He’s in power and it’s going to stay that way.

I figure at some point either everyone in DC may as well go  home and let Moscow Mitch sit in the Capitol all alone- maybe in the Rotunda on a lawnchair and do whatever it is grotesque human beings do when they are alone in the dark.

I just ate, so I don’t want to dwell on that visual for to long.

Seriously. What else can they do?

Just keep in mind, the last time  Moscow Mitch pulled this stunt we ended up with an incompetent and corrupt reality tv personality as President who destroyed our standing in the world, left  (  as of  January 22nd ) 415,653  Americans dead from a disease that ran unchecked because you know- unless Covid-19 had a P**$Y- there was no way Trump was going to touch the subject at all.

Here’s the deal, I have faith in President Biden. He knows what to do and if he doesn’t have to waste his time dealing with Moscow Mitch he can get to work.

But if Moscow Mitch wants to burn down the House to keep anyone else from being in charge of it- all I can say is it won’t be Democrats who will go down with it.

EVERYONE will.
