What has photography and art done for me?
They have opened up my eyes to see
Things of beauty which I once let go by
Like the changing colours in the sky.
Eyes to See
My heart swells when I see
Landscapes change with falling snow
Or the setting sun, casting out its warming glow.
How empty my life must have been
Missing all the things, I might have seen.
I walk a new path now, and at a different pace
I'm not confined to the industrial race
That 's what photography and art have done for me
They have given me a new life, and eyes through which to see.
