My Life

    

 

"What one has not experienced, one will never understand in print."Isadora Duncan, My Life 

The last few days have literally opened up my world to a whole new outlook.  My surgery Monday went well to remove the cataract in my right eye and replace it with an implant lens. I awoke yesterday and made my way downstairs and stood alone at my front door with tears streaming down my cheeks.  After 2 days of everything looking red following the surgery, my eye cleared and I instantly began seeing unclouded objects.  Everything looked so sharp and with such vivid colors that I stood there for what seemed like forever and just looked around.  How easily I had forgotten what bright colors were.  I find myself full of anticipation of what beautiful things there are in this world to view.  After waiting years to have the courage to get this done, I am now looking forward to having the left eye fixed.  It can't come soon enough. 
Life if good.  :)

Makes the song "I can see clearly now" have a little different meaning, huh?. I'm really happy you are doing so well. Spring is almost here. Be sure to take a long close look around. My Regards, Bill.
