See no Evil

A little departure today, time to reflect.

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.  You have probably heard the saying, but how many of us think of those senses in terms of luxury?  Well I had a challenge today to shoot an image representing luxury and this image came to mind.  Why?

I am one of the many fortunate ones who can hear (although diminishing now with age), see (with glasses), and speak (although perhaps a little incoherently at times).  I class myself as extremely lucky to still have these senses.  Unfortunately there are many who have lost one or more of these abilities, some were born without them, some have lost them through illness or accident, whilst some of our soldiers have either laid down their lives or have lost one, or more, or in some cases all these senses we take for granted.  For some of them I am sure it would seem a luxury to be able to hear, see or speak.

I hope I can always think of others who are perhaps less fortunate than me and never take my health, my life, or my good fortune for granted.  Peace to all.
