I just left my doctor’s office… Great news, I have perfect vision! At least that’s what she says. Those of you, who know me well, know that I love the beach and have spent most of my life on, under and around the ocean. The damage done to my eyes, by the sun, out there on that surfboard, was diagnosed as cataracts and mine were damaged badly. This surgeon is the world’s best and worked a miracle for me. I am 20/15 in both eyes once again. As a photographer I can’t imagine how I ever found colors and magic in a world that was rapidly going amber and dark.
I have often written, and spoken, about the importance of not just looking at the world but truly seeing it. Today, once again, I can. Azure blue skies, red-orange sunsets, rich green ponderosa pines, a million stars above and around the campfire; the faces of the ones that I love so dearly.
The Desert Wind whispers to all of us, in all of our senses, to fully enjoy the world of wonders that surrounds us… Now!
