Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

The important things are learned in faces,
in gestures,
not in our locked tongues.
The true things are too big or too small,
or in any case always the wrong size
to fit in the template called language.

~ Jeanette Winterson, Lighthousekeeping (Harvest Books, 2006)

    I love looking at faces. I always marvel at the uniqueness of faces and at seeing genetics and nutrition, at work…the combinations of possible outcome of what a face will look like are mind expanding…I am assuming that the photo of van Willem Hooymans illustrates a person suffering from Graves’ ophthalmopathy, an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism). In some people an outward manifestation can be Bulging eyes (exophthalmos)…

    About 30 percent of people with Graves’ disease show some signs and symptoms of a condition known as Graves’ ophthalmopathy. In Graves’ ophthalmopathy, inflammation and other immune system events affect muscles and other tissues around your eyes. The resulting signs and symptoms may include:

    Bulging eyes (exophthalmos)
    Gritty sensation in the eyes
    Pressure or pain in the eyes
    Puffy or retracted eyelids
    Reddened or inflamed eyes
    Light sensitivity
    Double vision
    Vision loss

  11. If I find those eyes looking at me when I wake up, I’ll have a heart attack.
