Expressive Eyes

I’ve been reading a lot of books lately courtesy of the new kindle I was gifted for Mothers Day. One thing I’ve really noticed in all the stories I’ve read is how much focus is given to the eyes. The eyes of the characters express so much of their feelings and emotions but in real life I just don’t see that.

Maybe I’m not observant enough or just never look people in the eyes but I don’t think I’ve ever really seen someone’s expressions in their eyes.
