  1. I’m glad you went to the doctor and that you have no tear to the retina. Stay well!


    • hi Barb,
      I like your little story and the moral:
      “Never argue with a woman who reads.
      It’s likely she can also think.
      At least now she has all the equipment . . .”

      my blind friend Rob in Brussels, supported by Catou:

      a flickr video – is it possible for you to watch??


      • Yes, I just watched it. Fabulous! Thank you for the link. The talent is impressive – the instrument sees no blindness – the talent is “blind to his blindness,” and that is one of the things that makes great music, in my opinion.


Hearing from you makes my day!
