What is essential is invisible to the eye

My son Liam Khalil, who at the time was two and a half, stopped aprubtly during a stroll we were taking in our little city of Lecco, Italy. He just started gazing up and out at the horizon. I didn't realize how special the moment really was until I saw the photo. It's as if he was looking into Eternity with the pure eyes of a child.
