There’s a Bruce Lee quote that I love: “It’s like a finger pointing at the sun. Look at the finger and you will miss all the heavenly glory.” Lately it seems as if all I’m able to do is stare at fingers. In my mind there’s a jumble of smaller and larger fingers poking at each other, twisting and curling. I walk these streets that are full of beautiful details waiting to be discovered and register nothing but these fingers poking at me.
The slow decay of the old city and the swagger of the new high-rise tenements, I don’t see them. Not even the posters with their cheap lettering, the bright colours of the stucco walls. I’m a blind man, I have been poked in the eyes, and I wonder if I will ever see again. If I do, I hope it will be on a sunny day.
