Eye Surgery

“In the valley of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.”
~August Wilson, Gem of the Ocean~

…or in my case, queen. The last three and a half weeks have proven to be a humbling time for me. What started out as a vitreous hemorrhage unfortunately turned into a detached retina. Wednesday found me at the hospital having eye surgery. No selfies to share, but I get to wear this till things clear up.


I’m Blessed and Grateful. I’m told my surgery went well and that my vision should slowly return as the above mentioned gas bubble dissipates. In the meantime, this is kinda how I see things, and that’s actually ‘clearer’ then what I’m ‘seeing’.  I have to admit this experience and how I ‘see’ things has undoubtedly changed. I will continue my journey with a new perspective and purpose,  though what that purpose is, remains to be ‘seen’.

My view, my life, is once again, forever changed.
