A Grim Exercise: Think for a moment what it would be like to go blind. Imagine all the things you'd probably never do again.
Here's my list:
Run to save my life, dance, watch a movie, oogle at my gorgeous husband, knit, cook, clean out the litter box, and complain about my cellulite or fat knees. The one thing that would really put a kink in my life would be my inability to do something I really love, photography.
If Michael Richard, the amazing guy the LA Times did a piece on, knew about the above list he'd tell me to scratch off the last item. The notion that photography is painting with light really rings true in his case.
