How hungry we all are to be seen.
Seen beyond assuming ignorance and judgement by how we appear.
Whether a supermodel or a man serving a life sentence.
Is it a crime to be “beautiful” or to feel beautiful?
Is it a crime to be so devoted to your practice that it is beautiful?
The camera does not judge.
He had a drug problem.
It’s not just a gift we can give.
It’s a gift we receive.
The honor of reflecting another’s humanity can be linked directly to reassuring someone that they exist.
