I’m still investigating the photograph my Dad took of Mike and my Mom. I estimate the date of the photo as circa 1958. Mike is my older brother who is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal. We used to go camping. Mike was a handful, I don’t know how my parents took us all (Mike, Dave, my younger brother, and me) on those trips.
I have spent many years trying to look into Mike’s eyes. If you were to look at him, you would see each eye looking in different directions. It was only on very rare occasions that Mike looked me in the eye. Actually I assume that he did looked me in the eye now and then. The only evidence I have is a photograph from Mike’s 40th birthday party.
This is why eyes, particularly my brother’s eyes, are important to me.
In today’s study, I closed in on Mike’s 10-year-old eye.
Here is the original photo:
