So I was walking to meet Victor at the train station, and my thoughts wondered thousands off miles away, where my mom lives. We had had a long chat today, the content of which made me feel sad and sorry for her current circumstances. So imagine my surprise when Tabbi2, an artist and blogger came up to me and asked if she could feature my photo on her blog. She really liked the way I matched my clothes, she said.
I’m the last person in the world to see myself through the prism of a disability, but in this case, I thought this could help others to just be themselves and follow their own tastes/passions/dreams. In legal docs I’m always referred to as “legally blind,” which always cracks me up, and I call myself “partially sighted.” And, as this little incident shows, a little sight can go a long way. 🙂
