There is a certain feeling I get when I look into a person’s eyes and see immediately the depth of their soul. It is peaceful and inviting and the eyes truly are the windows to each person’s soul. I can also feel the pain, sorrow and emptiness of a suffering soul. What’s most important in either case is to try and make a connection. A smile, an empathic look or even an embrace.

You never truly know what a person is going through and what an impact that loving gesture may have on them.
