I know the story of Dracula by Bram Stoker is just a story, but sometimes if you look at the fiction, there can be truths found there. Something I was taught from people who loved me, my Grandpa, a long time ago. He used to read National Enquirer and have just stacks of “tabloids” and we always kind of chided him for it because it all seemed to be so hard to believe, just “rubbish” reporting. I would read them with him and have off and on through the years read similar types of tabloids. There is a lot of story weaving going on….”fan fiction” but sometimes, on rare occasions, there are pieces of truth. You just have to know your own mind, your own heart, your own values and see these stories through a clear lense.
A last thought that came to me today is this….why do I love the eyes of living beings the most? It is through the eyes of living beings that love me that the God of my understanding shows me (and you) they love me too….they are able to see me through the eyes of love.
