Down an escalator with Mom

Now that my vision is almost nothing, it is always a wee challenge for me each time I venture down an escalator with Mom or, for that matter, with anyone else. I could find reasons or excuses for this but truth be told, I can't seem to find any or to come up with any at the moment.

Could I blame it on lack of vision? Or could I possibly blame it on fear of falling? Or rather still, could I blame it on a possible fear of the unknown? Maybe someone reading this particular blog could offer me some suggestions?

I have never really fallen on an escalator, so why am I afraid? I usually take all of the necessary steps before getting on an escalator and I am indeed very careful, so why then? I hold tightly to the banister of the escalator and I stick my cane on the step below where I am standing in order to gauge when the last step is coming up, so why then? I usually trust the person that I am with, Mom or anyone else, so why then?

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!"
