Seeing is vital, whether physically or emotionally.

“Seeing is believing.”
“I saw the light.”

Cataract recovery is weird

No pain..
Yet restrictions abound

  • No bending lower than waist
  • No rubbing eyes
  • No heavy lifting
  • Wear special sunglasses outside,rain or shine
  • Four different eyedrops 4x a day

Vision is distorted because only one eye is fixed so far.

HOWEVER — I AM NOT COMPAINING!!

Death card

Day 27
Everything here is new to me today. Tarot cards and blackout or erasure poetry.

The prompt I used: “And now for today’s (optional) prompt. Following Lauren Hunter’s practice of relying on tarot cards to generate ideas for poems, we challenge you to pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.”

Future change of life will be significant.
Loss leads forward. Embrace the end.
Things change suddenly, move perspective ahead. Continue with heart.
