Hello All,
My "big" day was October 16, 1975; the last day that I had usable vision. But ... what a joy it is today to know all of you wonderful people through the great organization of Bookshare! Hope that you all have a terrific day!

Hey Roger,

Your note caused me to do some calculations of my own.

Today is 38 years, 4 months, 6 days since I received a letter from my ski instructor certification trainer that I had passed and would I please sign on as a teacher at his ski school.

Today is also 38 years, 5 months, 4 days since I was paralyzed.

I never became a ski instructor.

Glad you are celebrating this personal milestone with us. Thanks!

It is likely that no one here cares, but this is on my mind and there is no
one else to mention it to. Today is the twenty-third anniversary of the last
time I saw a human being well enough to tell what they looked like. That
means that I have now spent just over forty per cent of my life being blind.
