I saw this picture 
on someone's blog over a month ago.  
I didn't know what to "do" with it
or what to think....so I copied it into my files.  
It has haunted me ever since.

I keep going back to it and looking.

What do you think when you look at this photo?
Do you feel anything?

    I see it as the the part of oneself that wants to ignore the problems one encounters and pretend they don't exist. It makes me feel sad, and also guilty of times when I may have reacted the same way.

  2. It's funny because I saw it differently. I had never thought about something outside myself turning my face from need. That was a disturbing thought. Somehow I could reconcile if it was myself doing it, because I could recognize it and make a change...

    When I look at the picture my immediate reaction is that I hope I don't allow myself to be manipulated to look away when I see someone in need. But I know there are times that I do. Manipulated by my own judgements or fears. I struggle with what is the right kind of help. Over by the 2nd street off ramp I have many times seen someone standing with a sign needing help. We/I have given the person/persons a couple of bucks many times. We have been told though that maybe the wrong kind of help and so our struggle is now well what is the right help that we can do.

  4. Yep...I see one of Satans' helpers, causing this guy to look the other way...to keep him from seeing this homeless person and possible keeping him from helping him. It's a good reminder of how we should be,... able to withstand the negative power satan has on us during these times.
