When non-blind people think about being blind, they start from their personal perspective. The easy conclusion is that they couldn’t do much on their own. When blind people think about being blind, they too think about it from their personal perspective. For me as a blind person, my conclusion is that being blind is a nuisance but does not stop me from doing most anything I want to do or need to do.
As you can tell from the title, I’m rambling again. I do have a new air fryer and I do have a gadget that tells me when the mail carrier delivers my mail. Also, we are going to have a new President and today is Veterans’ Day. All true. Even so, I do tend to ramble.
I got in early to order my new iPhone 12 mini that is coming next Friday. Why a new iPhone? Does “reading the mail” surprise you? Add that to a cracked bucket for Oliver’s water and a cleaner house and you have most of what’s new for me.
Today’s discussion includes the election, how nice it is to have children and grandchildren who care and the simple fact that, if it’s ok today, that’s about as good as it can be or ever gets.
I find myself in a new city, in a new house, by myself, blind and just me and Oliver — my guide dog. Getting back behind the mic is an option that hasn’t changed. I’ll be podcasting more often and plan to talk about how to get along blind when experience does not serve very well. I know how to live blind but know little to nothing about doing it by myself. It is an unexpected adventure, but an adventure nonetheless. Perhaps you will want to stop by now and then to take the journey with me.
