Standing in Solidarity with the Hurting

Eyes in Alley III

You can find some beautiful things in alleys and dark places. Just ask Elizabeth Gibson. On her typical morning walk she spotted something in a dumpster. She had no idea what it was but she said something just, “pulled me in”. She moved toward the dumpster. Had the courage to open lids, shift debris, and get her hands dirty only to find an abstract piece of art. Her words: Even though I didn’t understand it, I knew it had power”. The painting was a Rufino Tamayo original worth $1,049,000 at auction.

You can find some beautiful things in alleys and dark places. But to be real with you I very seldom want to run to those dark places. Getting my hands dirty by touching the debris of people’s lives is hard…
