Through the Eye of the Lens

Excerpt 6.

Here I am; just a chap going about my day. Walking down the sidewalk to meet the neighborhood kids. We gather around and just do the norm. A stranger would approach us. You're thinking about the things; your parents say never to talk to them. He looked like a villian from the movie, One Flew Over the Kookoo's Nest. A Jack Nicholson type character ready to scream and shout at you. And that he did; Jesus Christ is your savior. Repent, are you born again? If you believe in him. You will be saved. Goodness; how do you response to a nomad with a vindication. He had the look in his eyes of fear and any resolve to say otherwise was not going to make him go away. This was Lief Painter. Another iconic figure finding his way into Garfield Terrace. He would sermon for hours, if not days of his convictions to save the world. Hand us pamplets to read and so forth. But he was no stranger; after all. Everyone knew of his whereabouts. Just doing his deed to fulfill what he believed was his duty to serve the righteousness to others. He come and go; we offered him snacks and such for his time. Wave at him from time to time as he walked aimless up and down the streets. Again, his message was the same. People Are Strange by Jim Morrison would befit his character. But we got to know him; as Lief Painter. An ordinary man; after his vocals of who he truly believed he was in life. Yet; not so ordinary a fellow after all and by no means a stranger.

I have always liked the strange folks. They see the world with better eyes my friend.

I did like the above lines. We are strangers to another, just till we can met. Thank you Glen for sharing the amazing chapter.
