  1. In so many ways, this is true for me. But they are not all sad. Thank you!

  2. THAT’S for sure….I spent some time trying to figure out what I was looking at, LOL.

  3. How frustrating it is to find your sight failing before your eyes! (I’m not sure if I have misspelled any words in what I have typed!)

  4. aha…aw…happy forty 🙂

  5. Sometimes blurry is good – takes the edges of reality.. and i suppose our stories lie in the patterns of our fingerprints

  6. oh yes. Put the glasses on. Take the glasses off…

  7. Nice one!!!

    much love…

  8. Rosemary Nissen-Wade

    Ah, but the inner vision is surely sharper!

  9. I’m tempted to joke that it took about a week for my vision to clear up after New Year’s Eve, but the truth is just the opposite: My Beloved Sandra was unavoidably away, I don’t consume alcohol anyway, and I went to bed mere minutes after the ritual of watching Midnite click into 2017. Love the photo, though.
