Gloves and mittens not friends to blind people.

so, it is still cold here.  You need gloves or mittens or something on your hands when you venture outside.  How I hate that!  How I hate wearing anything on my hands.  Think about it!   My hands are like your eyes if you can see.  I touch something to know what it is.  My keys, To feel for a door handle, to figure out what something is.  Of course to read braille.  My hands are as important as my ears to navigate the world.  And when I cover them up, I feel clumsy and awkward.  So, if I have to figure something out, off come the gloves so I can touch it and figure out what it is.  Then, back on go the gloves.  Tomorrow, the types of hand coverings I've tried.

  1. Agree. Mittens are out for me. I do love the little knit gloves - usually around $1 - in various colors to wear with all my coats. They keep my hands warm but don't take away my sense of touch, somehow.
