It’ll be 2 weeks tomorrow since my first cataract surgery. During this time I can barely see, even with my old glasses on. They are too strong and make me seasick. This is probably the longest time I have ever been away from the blog.
A week from tomorrow I get the second eye done and in 3 weeks after that I will have new glasses. It is has been a strange and enlightening experience to have this much time on my hands.
I deeply appreciate the donations made but can certainly use a few more. It seems that only a small handful of people throw in to help ease the cost of the site and my work on it. I would encourage you to donate on a regular basis if you are profiting from my work in any way at all.
I have been off Facebook long enough to know I will not return except to keep apprised of local announcements and to check in on a handful of friends. I do not miss it at all.
I dream a lot at night, mostly unpleasant excursions into my past. The old family issues do not dissolve; they recur again and again during a lifetime. And the dreams feel so real. It takes a while to shake them off when I wake up.
Rob is chauffeuring me to the eye doctor, grocery, etc. I know he is tired of it. I am watching the HBO doc about Dr. Dre and Jimmy I. I hate to confess it, but I love the new Gong Show.
I am trying to get used to seeing myself without glasses; it is such a shock. Maybe I will do a video soon. I shouldn’t have any problem doing that. If someone has a subject you would like for me to talk about, leave a comment.
