Meryl Streep // "Put blinders on to the things that conspire to hold you back, especially the ones in your own head."

I see the lights of the school and the neighborhood houses blurred in the darkness.  This is the neighborhood where I take my nightly walks with the dog I really didn't want to get. The same dog who has quickly become my new best friend.

I see lights blurred by the blinders of so many changes that have taken place.  So many ups and downs.  These same blinders also show me the lights that lead me home.

Some people only see a blurry photo.

Some people don’t see anything at all.
