“olhos tristes”

The expression, I was told, is used for someone with blue eyes. Though my eyes are blue, the literal translation “sad eyes” is quite fitting these days too. I have been feeling blue for months now as I’ve struggled to nurse a broken heart. Things got worse this week when I learned that my uncle, my biggest cheerleader, passed away. My blue eyes have been red with tears a lot lately.

on a writing hiatus until I feel a little better. In the meantime, friends, take care of each other.
