Poking my head through the window

I suspect that there are many who often use the same strategy as me whenever they wish to hear better and it does not matter whether or not they are sighted or blind.

I poke my head through the window whenever I wish to hear better when I am standing at a counter and there is that opened window between me and the person on the other side of the desk or counter. Nothing to it and I do not think that many people would mind. It enables me to hear better what is being spoken in my direction and it is the most potent strategy for me to use.

I also poke my head through an open window when I wish to hear better what is going on outside. With very little vision now, it is the easiest way for me to independently know what is going on without having to ask for sighted assistance.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
