How funny– I didn’t even realize how poor my eyesight had gotten and when I scheduled my eye exam, I was mostly thinking it was just a checkup. Oh, there were those times before Christmas when I realized I couldn’t see the TV, but I thought my eyes were just tired from all the knitting I was doing. Turns out I’ve needed glasses for a long time, and just didn’t realize it. Wearing the new glasses, the world is so much crisper than it has been. I didn’t even know that most of the world was fuzzy to me!
You can’t realize that your own reality isn’t normal unless you have something else to compare it to– and when do you ever get the chance to look through someone else’s eyes?
