hope your year is winding down serenely and we all get a chance to catch our breath.
this year has been mostly teh suck for me; from April to October a series of unfortunate (and I’m told, unrelated) events led to, after dozens of doctor visits, several consults, and two major surgeries, to my becoming blind on the right eye.
remember kids, a “95% success rate” comes with a “5% failure rate”.
add age-related vision degeneration on the left eye, and my world has visibly (hah!) shrank. I can still drive, but having trouble adjusting to having no depth of field – I bump into people, columns and displays at the store. I spend way less time online as my eye tires, and (sorry to say) mostly hang around FB as it has the best visual adaptive controls. WP, IG, tumblr, all are nowhere as good.
there has been other suckitude, but not to the extent of the eye clusterfuck: I’m happy to say the rest of the family is thriving – teh LK grows handsomer, Princess Hank imperiouser, and Steven Elizabeth confushizzleder by the day. <— [that is good]
I leave you with an artist’s interpretation of meself in my new haircut. cheers!
