Great things about being blind. The wonderful describers!
This is a big thank you to my friends yesterday who described things to me. When you are blind, finding good describers is wonderful. We were at a friend's wedding reception today and it was held in her back yard. Several of my friends and former work colleagues were there and did a wonderful job of describing things to me. What people were wearing. What the yard looked like. How the tables were set up. What food was in the buffet. And they did it so naturally and without me asking them. Thank you to you for being friends to me and naturally knowing what I needed to know and telling me. I'm so glad to have such wonderful, fun friends in my life. Thank you. I love getting everyone's descriptions and then forming my own pictures. It is interesting too because different people provide different descriptions of the same events. So, I get a multitude of images. Thank you for that.
