My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

'Seeing' the World



(This picture is near where Paul baptized Lydia, his first European convert.)
I have felt like I wanted to travel the world while I still had a little bit of vision remaining. I feel fortunate that we have been able to do this over the years. I have been reminded on this wonderful trip to Greece one does not need to have 'sight' to enjoy the beauties and experiences of the world. Steve takes pictures so that when we return home - I can experience some of what he saw on this trip through some adaptations. However, I have enjoyed 'hearing' - wonderful conversation with our members of our group and the people of Greece, the sound of the sea, 'smelling' the different foods, 'tasting' good and not so good food, 'touching' some of the ruins, and walking hand in hand with Steve and 'following the footsteps of Paul'. This journey has been wonderful for many reasons but a joy to know that travel is a wonderful experience with or without sight. There are no plans to cease travel simply because I cannot see. I am ready for the next adventure!
