Helen: A Simple Story Where the Only Plot is Character.

17 Nov

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” — Helen Keller

Helen lived in a world of dark velvet where it was always midnight and unseen ghosts swirled about her.

People said she could not see or hear. That she wasn’t ordinary. And she wasn’t. You can’t be ordinary when you are extraordinary.

Helen could see the world the way God meant us to but we are blinded by the world so we only see what others tell us to see. Helen saw with a surgeon’s touch and a master chef’s nose.

Bathrooms were smooth and cool. Chess was smooth, not quite as cool and quite tricky. A bathroom was relaxing but chess was very demanding.

Food was heaven in different temperatures.

Reading was a trip around the moon.

Annie was warm and rough. With a trace too much cologne. Helen was a real life Sherlock Holmes.

The outside was a carnival. Especially, in the country side.

The city was fascinating, too. But sometimes in the hustle and bustle of downtown it seemed like a thunderstorm was raging even when she could feel the sun on her face.

But then Helen saw with heart. I never met her. Still, I miss her.
