When I got the diagnosis of dry macular degeneration (from the optician on a routine check-up) I was given a leaflet about AMD and of course came home and consulted Google.
A horrible experience (of more anon).
But I also went straight to Lucent Imagery. I may even have done that first, I can't remember now. I had come across Lucent's blog via Sarah's Down By The Sea Dorset and found it truly inspiring. What I liked most about it was that it was about living life to the full. The tag line is A legally blind photographer's journal but the blog was not about blindness. (AMD is a leading cause of blindness, though Lucent has different eye problems). It was about loving life and having adventures, being observant and mindful, and having fun. Lucent is an inspiration and a generous and brave spirit. We correspond now and then and I write about this subject here on the blog in the hope that someone else might find it helpful in the way that I found Lucent's blog helpful.
I don't want the character of my blog to change - it is about loving and appreciating the simple things in life and celebrating them daily, and my efforts to live simply in a complex world.
Thank you for reading.
