Oh this star is a nuisance. Everytime the sun comes out I'm screwed shut because I'm dazzled and then she gets a headache. A man shone a light into me today, he nearly blinded me, I was jumping around trying to get out of its way. He called it a "cateract". Something was dripped in to me and when she looked in the mirror she seemed a little sad that it was going. It looked very pretty.

Another man now. What's he got in his hand? It looks sharp. Where did it go? Ow! what was that, I can't move now.

There's a sheet over my twin now and I'm looking into a dark room. Another man is coming towards me. Wow! what a lovely blue light. What is he doing, pushing, pulling and puting liquid in me? I'm glad he put that sharp thing in me now. Oh, its gone dark again.

Another day, its that man again, I can see him out of my twin. Wow! isn't everything clear! That's how bright the colours look after all those years of looking washed out. Watch those steps, no its okay now, just one image not three! Hey brain, no more scrambled messages!

Hi Sue

I especially like the idea of the eye having a twin. I also lke the idea that the eye is so pleased it can see clearly.

Perhaps it would be good to do this from the other eye's perspective too.

best wishes

Hi Christie,

Many thanks for your comments. What a good idea that sounds, doing from other eye 'point of view'. I will have a go at that.

Many thanks for reading and comments,

Sue, I think this works most effectively when the eye has a limited knowledge of what's around it, otherwise we ask the question- how does it understand the concept of a headache? for example- whereas the idea of looking into a dark room, seeing a light etc is more imaginative. I'd like to see the twin eyes' view too- it might be totally different, and that would produce an interesting tension.

Hi Anna,

Many thanks for your comments. I can understand what you mean with regards to the headach. Working on the others' view at the moment.

Many thanks,
