It has been a little over a year that this blog has been in existence. During this time, writing daily, whether in blog posts or in my journals, has become my primary outlet for expression of my wonder about how my life which is increasingly more limited yet has opened up so many possibilities for which I am grateful. The most profound change for me has been the gradual diminishment of my eyesight, of difference in how I now “see” the world. With this change of perceptual ability have come amazing benefits, the foremost of this is a realization of the tremendous riches, almost an unbearable hoard of gifts, available to an individual within a given span of life.
The gift from the world of blogs has been discovering the individual voices of many persons – their remarkable personal expressions in word and image, their opinions, their permission to peek into the unique lives they lead, their passions and knowledge. My world which has grown increasingly narrow in scope has been given great breathing room, has expanded from the blogs of many of you and I have thereby continued to be able to keep learning new things. The varied points of view have caused me to pause and review many of my own opinions and beliefs.
Thank you all for your generosity of spirit and action, encouragement and comments. May your celebration at this time of year, whatever form it takes, provide you and yours much pleasure and satisfaction. The Solstice is upon us; revel in the longest dark and anticipate happily the growing light days. Cheers; G
