Great things about being blind. the people you meet.

It is a miserable rainy day outside but I had a wonderful day inside.
I spent the day with some families who have young children who are blind and some very dedicated and enthusiastic staff who work with people who are blind.
I told stories and talked about advocacy.
If I wasn't blind, I wouldn't have been asked to do this and wouldn't have been there to do it.
Also, I continue to see anew the value of storytelling as entertainment, as a powerful art form, and to help educate others about what it is like to be blind.
I'm so glad I'm an artist with a disability.
Gives me great blogging opportunities too.
Thanks to all who were there for this wonderful day.
