The Man Who Sees the World Through Squinted Eyes


The Man Who Sees the World Through Squinted Eyes

Thank you, Debbie Staud, for your suggestion of the title encompassing everyone’s feeling about this hardworking gentleman.  Thank you everyone on Facebook for passing on what you felt with this piece.  Here’s his story.

Arthur is a man of simple means, but his hopes and dreams are anything but. He has worked hard all his life, and he has seen his share of hardships. But through it all, he has never lost his love for his land and sea.

As he gazes out at the horizon, he thinks about his children and grandchildren. He hopes that they will carry on his legacy of love and respect for his amazing world. He knows that the world is changing, and that there will be challenges ahead. But he also knows that his family is strong, and that they will face these challenges together.

Arthur takes a deep breath of the fresh air, you see a glimpse of a smile on his face. He is content with his life, and he knows that he has done his best to prepare his family for the future. He is confident that they will continue to thrive in the years to come.

His hopes and dreams are simple, but they are also profound. He hopes that his family will always have a love for the land and sea. He hopes that they will always be kind and compassionate to others. And he hopes that they will always remember the importance of family.

Arthur’s hopes and dreams reflect the world he lives in. He is a man who is aware of the challenges that lie ahead, but he is also a man who is hopeful for the future. He believes that his family will be able to overcome any obstacle, and he believes that the world will be a better place because of them.

His hopes and dreams are a source of inspiration for all of us. They remind us of what is truly important in life. They remind us of the power of love, family, and our world. And they remind us that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope for a better tomorrow.
