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.
