On My Patio

8 Jan

by Aaron Carroll

Since losing my vision the simplest things bring me satisfaction. I can enjoy the fruits of my labor by being able to listen to the squirrels run and play by jumping on wires or climbing nearby trees. I can smell the different scents from the pleasant scent of laundry drying, releasing the fresh smell of different fabric softeners. I look forward to feeling the different weather conditions, whether it is sunny, rainy, or windy. I look forward to hearing the street cleaners because this brings back memories when I could see.

These things I do from sitting on my patio.

Aaron Carroll is coming to terms with his vision loss and finds some solace in his writing.  He also helps other blind people discover self-confidence and independence as a technology volunteer at Second Sense blind service organization.
