A Quote by Philip Graham on father, blind, and seeing

(I) wondered how my father could have such eyes and be so blind.  I hated to consider it, but maybe he had no seeing left for us.

A Quote by Philip Graham on window, antidote, comforting, quiet street, glass, chill, solid, and curiosity

The window offered an antidote: the comforting view of a quiet street.  I reached out to hold this sight but instead touched glass, felt its faint chill.  I pressed harder at the window.  If something so solid could be so easy to see through, I thought, then why weren't people the same way, open to any search, available to anyone's curiosity?

A Quote by Philip Graham on comfort, speak, and attention

My body tingled with the need for whatever comfort (my parents) might be able to offer, yet I found I couldn't speak or allow myself to draw their attention.
