Great things about being blind. Standing out.

Sometimes it bothers me that I always stand out in a crowd.  That people remember seeing me on the street walking, or that I spoke at an event, or well let's face it they just remember my dog!  But, there aren't so many of us around so we are memorable I guess.  It was definitely a good thing the other day.  I ran into (well no I didn't run into her literally) I met someone who recognized me or thought she did.  But, we hadn't seen each other since we were kids.  She asked my name and told me hers.  I couldn't believe it.  Neither could she.  So, we had a nice long chat.  If I had been a sighted person with no dog and just melding into the crowd, our paths may never have crossed.
