My technicolor dreams

There is one important thing that has been kept in place for me since losing most of my vision and that is my ability to dream in Technicolor. I do not know how to explain it and how/why it has continued like this for me, but there you have it.

Maybe some psychologist could help me out if they were to read this blog but I am just so happy that my dreams are like this. In my dreams, I can see things in the same way that I used to when I had limited vision. Colors are bright, images are clear enough for me to decipher something at close range, and I can definitely walk using an ID cane, the smaller cane.

Skies and ocean are blue! Grass and leaves are green! Flowers are in so many vibrant colors and images of buildings and people are clear enough to me. Clouds are white or dark, sunrises are golden, and sunsets are orange. I can cross the street without any hesitation. I can ice skate on my own. I can walk along pushing my buggy without any fear of running into objects and I can find stores in the mall without too much difficulty. I can use landmarks to do it all.

Ah yes! My Technicolor dreams! How I wish that they could somehow turn into reality!
