Great things about being blind. Post for my dad on father's day.
IIt is Father's day and so I wanted to write about my dad. Thanks dad for being such a wonderful, supportive dad through the years. Thanks for giving me my love of words, of writing, of learning. Thanks for never talking down to me. For never saying I couldn't do something because I am blind. For introducing me to many sports. For finding ways to adapt those sports with me. You invented the tapper for telling me when the wall was approaching in my competitive swimming days. You found a ball big enough for me to kick and showed me how. You guided me when running and skating. Thanks for your calmness, your intelligence, your steadiness, your humour.
