Eyes opened

A classic Christmas card with three angels. One of the angels halos has slipped down slightly and the angel looks ahead with eyes opened. All the while the other angels eyes are closed as they continue to pray. Leading me into the idea of trauma.

What happens when you suddenly realise something is wrong? Is there a trauma? It is as though your eyes are closed and you are in a world of perfect routine and order. Then it happens. But what happens? The unexpected and it draws you away from the harmony. Others can get drawn in as well. Suddenly you see the ripples in the order of things. Sometimes everything falls away. It can be literal or mental but either way it is happening or has happened. Events can be like explosions but in a subtle slow drawn out way. People slowly find themselves so far away. Ever so far away. Though now with their eyes wide open to the world around them.
