THE AGE OF EYES

The first eye, the eye that inaugurated the age, was the sulphur-yellow eye, a luminous ring floating in an overheated grey void, with an infinite pit in its center. Unlike the eyes to come it did not attract or repulse.

The yellow eye was blind; light could not enter it. I saw it when I closed my own eyes, when I prepared myself for a collision, when I lay down intoxicated. I saw it in the noontime sky and I saw it when I dug in the sand. When I saw larger eyes, oval eyes, seeing eyes and hanging eyes I often saw the yellow eye standing behind them, standing back, not obtruding.

The yellow eye was neither friendly nor unfriendly. It never frightened me unless I was trying to think of no eye at all; then it hung on stubbornly. Then I really could not stand it and I would scream into my pillow if I was in bed or into my hands if I was in the schoolyard or at the table.

Later, when the Age of Eyes had ended, I wondered if I had not made a proof of my touristic sensibility by regarding the yellow eye with such incomprehension. Zero understanding, you might say, and you would be right.

Your nascent blog stands shoulder to shoulder with The Post-Punk Kitchen (theppk.com) as my favorite stop on the internet. I've been a fan for a while now, and I thought this luminous entry would be a good a time as any to express how much I enjoy your work. As much as I love the Frank stories, Seeing Things has provided innumerable moments of disturbing potency. It's taken up permanent residence at my bedside table. Thanks again, and all the best to you and yours-

Dear Jim Woodring

Thank you for making a note in my blog♪

Japan and U.S.A. have distance, but, on Internet, are near immediately♪

Let's talk in real time.
(With the feeling that is in a neighborhood♪)

I may sometimes make a mistake in a word.
Please understand it.

Best Wishes.

Takaya 
From Japan

When I was yonger I would stare at the sky (if it was clear as it usually is in San Jose) and notice all these little translucent circular shapes that would hover around in my extra nearfield. Like floating jellyfish. If I moved my eyes to catch one they would move away.

It wasn't until years later that I realized that I carried these little ghosts around with me all the time.

to armless octopus, Yeah, me too I can still see them though.
There's that one HP Lovecraft story, From Beyond is it , That talks about that sort of thing.
I think its really an effect of our eyes working in some sort of microscope effect, It was neat to see someone else mention it though.

Our bodies are crawling with life , Everywhere, things eating and being eaten, ceaselessly!

One of the most vivid and powerful dreams I had as a child was running out into the field behind the school and seeing these huge silent spaceships hovering high in the sky over the baseball diamond, maybe ten tremendous silent clusters of light remaining perfectly still and glowing in the twilight blue summer sky like neon. They didn't look like typical spaceships, no saucers or anything, more like delicate glass sculptures, or glowing floaters from the deep sea. One was shaped like a treble cleff. People came out of houses and looked up in silence and awe. It wasn't clear if these things were good or evil, or totally oblivious to us down below, but it seemed like some display of beauty and power. The dream seemed so real I couldn't shake it for a long time. I still can't shake it.

Hell, you can't comprehend until such time as you grow the mind to apprehend! And even then most of us are SOL.

Perhaps the eye was solely an emanator...a nozzle mistaken for an eye!
