Great things about being blind. Kind describer.

Performed stories last night in a bar and did not like my performance. It was noisy and although afterwards people said that people were listening, it really didn't feel like it. There were lots of performers there. Some slam poets, a comic, and some reading poetry. A woman sat beside me and described each person as they got on stage. She told me about their hand movements, facial expressions, what they were wearing, what they looked like. In an environment where I felt somewhat lost and left out, she really helped me to feel more comfortable. I thank her for that so very much.

  1. I just found your blog and think it is fantastic! Lovely writing, funny stories, and meaningful reminders for all of us--blind or sighted. I'm sure many folks have asked this before me, but have you thought about publishing these posts as a book? What a great daily reader they could make!
