Vision


“…a venturesome spirit impels me to use words of sight and sound whose meaning I can guess only from analogy and fancy. This hazardous game is half the delight, the frolic, of daily life.

I glow as I read of splendours which the eye alone can survey. Allusions to moonbeams and clouds do not emphasize the sense of my affliction: They carry my soul beyond affliction's narrow actuality. "

-Helen Keller

Wow! How fortunate we are to have the gift of sight and hearing. Helen Keller was so amazing -- I can't possibly fathom how she was able to learn to communicate without the senses that we take for granted every day!
