SeeingWhat is light?I have been told it can be dim, strong, colorful,even blinding at times.What a silly notion,that the light you seecan be compared to blindness.People ask me what I see,if my whole world is pitch black.What a silly question.How am I to know whether I sense blue or black or white?What am I to compare it to?All I know is that there is nothing,and nothing is all I'll ever know.In my eyes the world is a voidlittered with strange somethingsthat I occasionally stub my toe onbut only when I'm careless.Woe to the sightless in the seeing world!We are judged before we even sense our jury.Who is to say that the blind aren't the seers?That the deaf aren't the hearers?What if the average human beings,are the ones with the handicap?Surely they couldn't standa day in my world.What do I see?I see the scraping of shoes against pavement.I see the vibrations of a metal chairand the slight give of old leather.I see the wriggling of soft furcovering a new pup.Thi

Since they originally lived in Oregon, Walt thought that by purchasing a house in Northern Hollywood he would be able to bring his family closer together. After spending some time in the house, his mother Flora had mentioned that something was wrong with the gas furnace. Walt sent a handyman to check on it, but one tragic morning in 1938 his mother was found dead on the bathroom floor. Flora's cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning, and Walt blamed himself for what had happened to her. Haunted by his own guilt over the death of his mother, Walt Disney pays homage to her throughout many rides in the Disneyland park, as well as within his films. For example, in Sleeping Beauty he uses the name Flora for one of the Good Fairies, who happens to be the leader of the other two (Fauna and Merryweather).
