    Hi Ruth,

    Your post gives me an idea! I have a dear friend who has almost completely lost her sight due to undiagnosed glaucoma. I used to read to her when I lived nearby up in the kingdom but it never occurred to me that I could read to her over the phone. I’m going to suggest it to her! Thank you so much.

    This is the winter I will finish my novel. If you are ever interested and available to take a look at part or all of what I’ve got (about 100 pages or so), let me know.

    all the best,

    Thank you so much for notifying me that there was a new blog up. I got the RSS feed to work now, so i will be notified automatically everytime there is a new blog on your page. I am really impressed by what you write, it really has touched me. I am losing my sight at my young age to Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, which for me to describe is almost the opposite of macular degeneration (which my grandfather had). I am in the stages now of teaching my daughter to read. I just hope that she will be able to read well enough, to be able to read to me in the next few years after I lose my sight. Sharing this information was moving for me 🙂

    Ruth, I absolutely love this tradition you’ve started. =) I’m so sorry to hear about your mother’s eyes, but in a way, it’s beautiful how this has brought you two closer together. =)

    I need to say, youve got one of the greatest blogs Ive noticed in a long time. What I wouldnt give to have the ability to build a blog thats as fascinating as this. I guess Ill just have to maintain reading yours and hope that 1 day I can write on a subject with as substantially information as youve got on this one!
