Macular Degeneration and Me

Low Vision and High Hope

More Laughing Matters

Last week’s post, Laughing Matters, seemed to resonate with many of you.  Even without low vision, life is serious stuff so taking a few minutes to lighten up is actually very good medicine without the pharma part.   This weekend’s trip to Vermont, the most beautiful of weddings and a lovely trip home, certainly brightened my life.  We all need times like this.

A friend of mine, Belinda Brasley, just posted a great article called 20 Ways to Brighten Your Day, and with her permission, please take a few minutes to read it.  Then you can add some of your own thoughts.  While you are on her site, Losing Vision Gaining Insight, take a few minutes to read her article called Spinning.  Tired of spinning, try a few of the 20 Ways to improve your mood and enjoy life again.  I hadn’t thought about the Plate Spinning Guy in years.  Laughed our loud.

By the way, I call Belinda my friend although we have never met. We are part of a group of low vision or blind people  who support each other in our journey through life.  Belinda and I share a lot of things:  her right eye is her best eye, mine too; she has scar tissue on the left eye, me too; we are both from areas in upstate New York (Albany and Rochester); she Gains Insight, I have High Hope; we don’t drive much anymore.  Some day we may meet (of course both of us have some facial recognition issues) but for now I draw on her strength and perceptions and sense of humor.

Belinda is also a photographer and while you are on her site, enjoy the photos.
