Great things about being blind. Imagination.

On the weekend at one of my shows, got reacquainted with someone that I knew as a kid. She was a sort of guide for me getting to and from music camp when I was about 10 and she was 14 or so. For the next few summers, we spent time together when I was home alone and we did things together. She had a great imagination and she said how she remembered that we spent days at a time in other worlds. We recorded these radio play things and loved lord of the rings etc. Brings back great memories for me. Got me thinking about imagination. Since vision is the sense we all use the most (90 percent of what we learn is through our eyes) if someone is blind, they need to fill in gaps in their knowledge sometimes. They can ask questions. I do that a lot. And/or they can imagine things. I do that a lot too. So my imagination which is quite developed could have developed in part due to my blindness perhaps. However it developed, I am glad it is here.
