Great things about being blind seeing the moon
One great thing about being blind is looking at things and thinking they are awesome. Sometimes they aren't what you think they are. I've been practically totally blind since birth. I can however see light in one eye. One time when I was quite young, I was sitting on the steps in our back yard. I saw a nice bright light. It was night time so I presumed it was the moon. How wonderful! I was gazing at the moon. Just like people in novels did or the people in folk tales. I gazed and gazed and felt very awestruck and superior. My dad came out to ask what I was doing. I informed him that I was gazing at the beautiful full moon. He asked me to point to it and when I did, he informed me that I was actually gazing at a streetlight. Nevertheless, the moonstruck feeling was there! And the feeling was amazing!
