My Mother's Eyes
It's been a busy weekend. Somehow, it has become all about eyes. My mother, still gorgeous at 81, just had a cornea transplant. The doctor is thrilled with the outcome of the surgery and although he only operated on one eye, it may turn out that her bad eye will become her almost perfect eye. Amazing!
I'm also dealing with an eye problem that I'm hoping will resolve soon. I go to the ophthalmologist this week to find out.
But the cutest eyes of the weekend are the ones I'm painting for the children at my son's former elementary school. They are performing in The Wiz. I've been volunteering my theatrical make-up skills to create lions and scarecrows and tin woodsmen and a variety of witches. If I can get some photos I'll post them here. The kids are wonderful in their roles and even more fun to work with. They go to a magnet school that puts on musicals of high school caliber. Truly wonderful!
So this weekend, the eyes have it.
