I love your blog. I have Macular Degeneration and am slowly losing my eyesight. I also knit, write and am a photographer. My educational background is in Sociology (Social Work emphasis) but I am not working outside the home at the moment. I would love to correspond with you. My contact info is below. (Also I have many many tea recommendations and crockpot recipes, come to the dark side!)
I just stumbled upon your blog when a friend shared your entry about “Beauty standards and disability”…I loved that entry and your blog! I’m a former burlesque performer (who worked with a temporary disability for about half of my burly career) and currently a drama instructor for special needs children. Keep writing as I’d love to read more!
I like your short story “A place out of time” I read at Fireside fiction co. Keep writing.
