I won’t draw this post out. I won’t go into a lengthy explanation of my appointment with the cataract surgeon, describe his tie or his demeanour. I won’t write about the drive to the clinic in Waterford or about the battery of tests. I won’t go on and on and on….I will just say this: ON 13, OCTOBER, I BID FAREWELL TO THE FIRST CATARACT!!!!!!!!! Four weeks later, the second will be taken out. I am excited and terrified and will definitely be writing more soon!
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.
