So the truth: going blind sucks. It isn’t a gift or a renewal on life or a connection to some fucking deity; it just sucks. It sucks because I can’t do an errand like a normal person; jump in the car and get some milk. It sucks because I can’t see the computer screen clearly and if I sit in front of it for too long my eyes ache and tear. It sucks because every day is harder than it needs to be. And it sucks because life is hard enough without this stupid impending blindness thing.
I am a writer, going blind in Los Angeles. This blog is my story of a slow approach to darkness as I traverse through the rubble of urban life. It is what I see in the withering spaces of my remaining vision. It is humor and despair and darkness and light. It is what I witness as the world slowly disappears.
