The 30-Day Blogging Challenge, Day 27: A Physical Feature I Love

  • Day 27: A physical feature you love.

I’m assuming this means a body part, and not a physical feature like a geological feature. Although rocks are cool.

That is probably the worst photo of me ever taken, but do you know how hard it is to take photos of just your eyes, while trying not to make either your forehead or nose look big?!

Anyway. My eyes are my favorite feature. When Katelyn and I write letters, we like to include a random question at the end. The random question at the end of our most recent letter was ‘What sense would you be willing to lose?’ I couldn’t decide between touch and smell, but I definitely do not want to lose my sight.

Without my eyes, I couldn’t take pictures. (Oh, stop laughing at the photo above! Don’t say, “You could take better pictures without using your eyes; that one was so bad!”)

Without my eyes, I couldn’t see all kinds of beautiful things: art, natural wonders like Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, and simple-yet-pretty things like flowers, or puffy white clouds against a blue sky.

Without my eyes, I couldn’t see my family or friends and that would make me sad, because they are really cool.

Most importantly, without my eyes, I wouldn’t be able to read. Yes, I know I could learn Braille or listen to books on tape. But it wouldn’t be the same. Reading is really important to me and I spend quite a bit of time each day reading, so I use my eyes a lot.
