it's the eyes

The question posed on NaBloPoMo today to prompt us to blog was:

What do you notice first about a person?

I notice eyes.  It's the eyes.  Always the eyes.  It doesn't matter what a person looks like, whether they are beautiful, how they are dressed, or anything else, although those are the first things most people notice.  Those things are superficial, a wrapping that never really tells us what a person is really like.  But the eyes do.
Eyes are universal.  They speak without words.  They show a smile, sadness, anger, joy and any other emotion you can think of.  Right there in the eyes.  The window to who we are and what we feel.  The eyes invite, they repel, they scare, they mystify, and sometimes horrify.  But they are compelling.  For me.  It's the eyes, always the eyes.
