It is I... this reminds me of the character LeCLerc from BBC TV 'Allo 'Allo.
It is always amazing how a partially sighted and partially disguised man always causes the most hilarity.... as if you never saw what was coming up anyway.
But this is also true of many other things that we look from a distance, unsure of what is coming towards us but rather than accept the truth that is before us we shy away.
Many in this world are rejected and excluded because certain people are frightened of the simplest of things. But what are they frightened for.... ?
"It is I, do not be afraid." (John 6:20)
