What I perceive now

I'll tell you, it's precious very little. I can barely see fingers or hand movements in front of me and these have to be almost right up against my cheek. I can see very little light and maybe someone walking very close in front of me. I may be able to see some shadows, but you know what? It is really difficult for me, to be sure.

Why is this? Because I am not sure if at times I am perceiving or really seeing. It's very difficult and at times I am a bit confused. Suffice it to say that my vision is almost at a big round zero.

That's okay! I mean it! I have adjusted to it all and it has been 10 years since it happened. In January 2004 fate delivered a blow when she failed to help doctors repair a badly torn retina. Since then, it has been a matter of readjusting and moving on.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
