Cricket and I had the chance to visit a junior high today. We shared some experiences. I told Cricket forward. I thought she would stop at the edge of the stage like a step ... nope, she turned her whole body in front of me and treated it like a dangerous drop off to avoid. I was pretty impressed. She doesn't cease to amaze me! Besides chatting about guide dogs - blindness - finding clothes that you love; I encouraged them to be true to themselves, to celebrate who they are and embrace their strengths and potential strengths. I told them that in the midst of losing my vision someone shared with me how beautiful my eyes were. I still recall stopping like - my eyes - they are degenerating - not that pretty :) It was a lesson to be learned. Even in loss there is so much beauty.
