366 Project - Day 222 - "Abstract (Distorted)"

August 09, 2016 - "Abstract (Distorted)"

I wake up in the morning and I blindly feel for my eyeglasses. They serve as a means for me to see things clearly as I stumble my way into the bathroom and put in my contact lenses. The contact lenses then serve as a tool for my eyes to focus more clearly on the scenes before me as I go about my day and my journey through life.

Sometimes I feel as if the contact lenses are not enough, though. Sometimes I feel as if the scenes before me are still somewhat distorted.

It isn't that my prescription is off - as I've recently been to the eye doctor and had everything adjusted to the current needs of my eyes.

It isn't my eyes.

It isn't the contact lenses.

What is it, then?

What is it that I'm seeing?

I see things I should not be able to see.

I know things I should not be able to know.

Is what I'm seeing "real"?

Is it just in my mind?

Does it even matter?

Does it?

I do not know.

I do not know.
