My line of work requires me to make sense of things. To simplify the complex. Find patterns in what appears to be random. Distill the essence of the adulterated. And be able to focus on the black and white, beyond the varying shades of gray.
And that's probably how I became wired to always seek answers. To understand cause and effect. And uncover truth behind metaphor. They even say that you need only stare at it long enough, and the image within a stereogram will reveal itself to you.
My nephew will be celebrating his second birthday soon. I bring up his photo on my phone and touch his virtual face with affection. He was just shy of one year then. And now. Perpetually.
They say that if you look at something long enough, its meaning will come to you. It's been over a year already since he passed, and I'm still staring.
