Yes they belong to the same awesome person.

A friend of mine was doing a dog transport — helping save rescued dogs by getting them to a safe place to find forever homes — came to drop some dogs here in town. I was happy that she had time to get together for lunch. I giggled when I saw the two pairs of glasses she lay on the table. What an awesome person to have two such cheerful pair of glasses! Not to mention doing dog transport. We had a great lunch¬†which¬†was over too soon. This photo of her glasses will always remind me of her visit and how lucky I am to have her as a friend.

What do think we see?

This applies not just to Muslims, who may have the roughest time of it these days, but to someone wearing a yamulke or Star of David or pentagram or a crystal. It applies to anyone whose clothing or symbols differ from mainstream of the person’s location.

I have been asked, when wearing a Pentagram, if I was a devil worshipper. It was asked in a tone of curiosity rather than derision, so I answered in the same way that I was not, and told the person a little bit about pentagram symbolism. In the end, they thought it was cool rather than evil. It doesn’t always work out that easily and well, but I feel we still could choose to remind people–especially ourselves–that what we see is not always what we think we see.
