Caregiving: "Tale as old as time ..."

     Sunday we attended our daughter’s high school’s production of Disney’s Beauty & the Beast.   

     Seated only a few rows back this picture even in life size scale was only a living blur of changing colors and shapes to Patti’s MS vision.

     Unlike a mega screen at a movie, live theatre for Patti is experienced without the benefit of costumes, sets, and characters.

     Talking with able bodied and able visioned people after the play, I was impressed by a remark I overheard Patti make in conversation, “Just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it. I hear too well ... plus I always have my imagination!”

     Just being able to read this computer screen I know I too often let my sight trap my 'focus'.

 “You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”           Mark Twain


  1. that is so true :) have a great thursday:)


  2. wow, I'm impressed at the props, stage and costumes for a high school production! Awesome! Was your daughter in the production? I like Patti's attitude. How often we do forget we have more than one way to view the world.

    I hope you are doing well; I'm glad you updated your journal; was wondering how you all were :)


  3. Beautiful.

  4. Your Patti is a very special person!.
