Do you remember this picture of the Afghan girl?

I saw this picture of the Afghan girl and her eye color and never thought much about it some years ago. For some reason I saw another article about this on the internets and how the author or someone went back to Afghanistan and located the same girl, now a mature lady, and took some more pictures. Here eyes are still beautiful. They’re mesmerizing. I have some patients with eyes like that and they can be startling to see. Almost makes me forget there’s a person inside who’s like you and me. Really! I feel that way about some eyes.

What also is interesting in the picture below is how the facial changes make me wonder what those eyes have gone through over time. There’s a lot that’s happened to this little girl over time. If you could get a picture from when you were a child and recreate the same pose and compare them together, would you have a great story, and/or a difficult one to tell? I’d welcome any chance to see if you could put two pictures of yourself together and then hear what your story would be. I’ll try to get mine and see what I come up with. Stay tuned!
