The Invisible is Always Visible

I found this image on tumblr, I have no idea who created it, although I did try to find the source so I could link to it and credit it… but I have an idea of why they created it. I think it is beautiful.

“I am an invisible man. 
No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: 
Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. 
I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids 
- and I might even be said to possess a mind. 
I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.” ― Ralph Ellison


    • True, but I think they do it because they are afraid to see, not sure what to do once they’ve seen, because what is seen appears to be frightening, and threatens the fabric of reality which always feels fragile. So not seeing is a defense mechanism. Not seeing so as to survive.

      Still, there are those who do see and who are not afraid to see, and who don’t look away… I am guessing that you are one of those, with eyes full of courage. That is a beautiful gift.
