Third Anniversary

Three white candles lay on a blue raised dot surface.Around this time three years ago, I launched Adventures in Low Vision. It’s wonderful to be able to mark positive moments like this one. Many thanks to all of you for reading the blog and commenting and sharing links and learning with me as I live with low vision.

Over the years since acquiring my disability, I rode my tandem with my husband,  we went hiking with our terriers, and we flew places.  I cooked carne adovada, I baked soft pretzels and key lime pie, I made notorious nonbons. With a vision impairment, I still use the oven, I go to the movies, I watch TV and I read many, many books. I painted a seascape. I write and rewrite. I attend performing arts shows. I dream about driverless cars. I struggle with the violence in football, yet love my Buffalo Bills. My terriers always keep me on my toes. With assistive technology, I work. I read on the go. I track my bus. I listen to podcasts. And that’s only a slice of Adventures in Low Vision.

Good day or bad day, let’s dance. A disability doesn’t mean your life is over. A disability is not shameful. It just means you learn asking for help isn’t a weakness and you learn to do some things differently. It’s truly an adventure. What’s next? There’s plenty more out there to try and experience and figure out. Let’s go!
