Through My Eyes     > website
BK
Back in 2002 when I was told that I would possibly lose my sight to wet macular degeneration I was devastated. The central vision allows you to sew, to read books and newspapers, watch TV and see familiar faces. What a tragedy that this most precious gift might be taken from me... We've been fortunate enough to have traveled a bit since our retirement and those wonderful memories are sealed in many photos. In fact, those photos mean so much to me that I want to share a sampling of them with you, along with some of my poetry and prose. I have no agenda with this book, except to bring joy and maybe a smile to anyone who lifts the cover and turns each page. Joy is reaching out to touch you if you will but open your heart and your eyes.
