11.04. Looking closely at someone you love

Today’s like is inspired by a page I was reading today in “Catching Fire”, Part 2 of the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
In it, Katniss is watching Peeta as he paints.
Perhaps its something we should all do with our loved ones more often. Take a look. Look closely. Appreciate them.
“I like to watch his hands as he works, making a blank page bloom with strokes of ink, adding touches of colour to our previously black and yellowish book. His face takes on a special look when he concentrates. His usual easy expression is replaced by something more intense and removed that suggests and entire world locked away inside him…I don’t quite know what to make of it. I also become a little fixated on his eyelashes, which ordinarily you don’t notice so much because they’re so blond. But up close in the sunlight slanting in from the window, they’re a light golden colour and so long I don’t see how they keep from getting all tangled up when he blinks.”

Take a look. Tell me what you see.
