Q/ But you don’t look blind?

A/ There’s not too much I can do about this one. What does a blind person look like anyway? This is one of the many reasons I carry a white cane, so that people know I am blind because they can’t tell from looking at me. The vein side of me is pleased that my eyes look normal. The pragmatic side of me wishes I did look so called “blind”. It would save loads of guessing. People often comment that I am looking straight at them, but what I think is happening is that they are looking straight at me and our eyes connect.
