Lost is the age of innocence...

I was going through some old photographs in one of the old albums lying around (and I must say, flipping through photographs manually is a lot more fun than having a million pics on your laptop and changing slides...but that's not the point.) I found a ton of photographs of a lot of my childhood friends from a time when the cares of the world were unknown to us. You know what is the most intriguing aspect of those pics? Their eyes. They were honest and absolutely flowing with whatever emotion they had in them. They were overflowing with an innocence that over the years life seems to have taken away from them. Oh! How I long to be among them once again in that time. Love, careers, politics, betrayals, jealousy and the entire gamut of life that has robbed them of all that they were.

But then again, I guess that's life right?

I wonder if that's happened to me too? Nah...I'm too naive for that!

I was searching for this kindergarten picture of mine, or maybe that was just an excuse to flip through all of them again.
The eyes, they talk. The thing that amazes you is the innocence of course but the trust.
I mean, there you are standing arms in arms sharing your pink bunny with your friend laughing, not knowing the same person would turn out to be sucha bitch ten years down teh line.

ahhh...life is all about forgiving and forgetting. we'll get nowhere holding grudges no matter how badly we are wronged...
and the eyes always have a habit of screaming out. so much about a person that you can tell from their eyes! i like doing the exercise of looking in people's eyes and reading their minds...funny thing is, i am right most of the time!!!
