Recently I was visited by a very good friend who had just returned from a long walk in the woods, and I asked her what she had observed. In the years following her illness Helen became a difficult child, she would run into things, break numerous objects, and throw temper tantrums because she could no longer understand anything. I was able to catch thus a meagre glimpse of the world of drama, and I shall never forget the delight of that moment. I, naturally, should want most to see the things which have become dear to me through my years of darkness. ؟ افتح عينيك الأن وأحمد الله على نعمة وهبها. In the afternoon of that first seeing day, I should take a long walk in the woods and intoxicate my eyes on the beauties of the world of Nature, trying desperately to absorb in a few hours the vast splendor which is constantly unfolding itself to those who can see. There, indeed, is a place to use your eyes.

I start from my home in the quiet little suburb of Forest Hills, Long Island. The quality of your watch is excellent, and she is able to hear the time. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult life. Yet I am told that, to many of you who have eyes to see, the world of art is a dark night, unexplored and unilluminated. I know my friends from the feel of their faces.

The following morning, I should again greet the dawn, anxious to discover new delights, new revelations of beauty. الحرمان من نعمة البصر قاس جدا.
I hurry to the top of one of those gigantic structures, the Empire State Building, for there, a short time ago, I 'saw' the city below through the eyes of my secretary. Even now I often attend theatrical performances of all sorts, but the action of the play must be spelled into my hand by a companion. There, indeed, is a place to use your eyes. And I should pray for the glory of a colorful sunset. I might have been incredulous had I not been accustomed to such responses, for long ago I became convinced that the seeing see little.
