retracing a few steps

my vision is returning in jumps and start ... maybe fogs and mists dispersing is a better description, but my right eye is still very prone to infection and clags up frequently ...this is an excellent excuse not to go shopping (yet again) ... so yesterday .... or was it the day before? ...I found myself trying my arm at sketching from the web once more ... was fun, even though the sketch was hazy ... I felt I was back on the way to being creative again

my big day out

i have finally done it ... gone out by myself ...even used public transport and no one seemed to notice my bleariness ... it was such a big thing ... means i am on the mend

I don't mean to be ungrateful, i have been looked after very well ... i;m just yearning for bloke stuff ... not shopping malls and endless conversations about relationships ... just a beer and a yarn about sailing or sport ...and meals with meat!

well i made it got to my destimation and home again :) life can be a series of small steps.

Second sight

No doubt you have noticed I haven't been uploading a lot and I'm very quiet on flickr ... you see the problems is I have gone,at least officially, blind... and yes it is totally horrible ... i hate it ...but i can see ... dark and light in a very blurry and disconcerting way ...if i look long enough and squint I can sometimes make out people versus objects ... so I'm not really blind I just can not see what I'm expected too ...my world is confusing to say the least ...AND now I hate the bright lights of the medical specialist and the "how many fingers am I holding up?" question ...I just see a blur with fingers appearing and disappearing at will, sometimes it doesn't even resemble a hand in front of my face ... I don't know how many so just stop asking thank you ... just fix what ever you can!! please and do it soon!!

Well it s only 70 days since the real problems started and what a 70days. I last paid $1.69 per litre for petrol (before I had to stop driving). Whilst fanny and freddy had essentially collapsed and been picked up, the banks were still sitting mum and no one I knew was traking about a global financial crisis, heck interest rates where still high. Ok so a lot has changes but why does everyoine have such a gloomy, sullen disposition. It is nearly christmas, the coffe is still good and the shops are open and people are buying christmass presents. Just remember, it is now the time for some
