Traveler's Color (photostory)

"people usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But i think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle".
-Thich Nhat Hanh-

"i was wondering about my eyes; one of my eyes--the left-- saw everything golden and yellow and orange, and the other eye saw shades of blue and grey and green; perhaps one eye was for daylight and the other was for night. If everyone in the world saw different colors from different eyes, there might be a great many new colors still to be invented".

"i stared out of the window at the bright - blue Swiss sky and i told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn't have met, and who didn't like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other. And i told him of the adventures they had, the places they had gone, and the things i had seen that i had never expected to".

"one time, when i was very little, i climbed a tree and ate these green, sour apples. My stomach swelled and became hard like a drum, it hurt a lot. Mother said that if i'd just waited for the apples to ripen, i wouldn't have become sick. So now, whenever i really want something, i try to remember what she said about the apples".

"i have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what i want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging accross it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads".

"my dream is to walk around the world. A smallish backpack, all essentials neatly in place. A camera. A notebook. A traveling paint set. A hat. Good shoes. A nice pleated (green?) skirt for the occasional seaside hotel afternoon dance".
