New Year Wishes

1 Jan

by Stella De Genova

Another year is upon us. We all have hopes and dreams for the upcoming year: love, peace, good health, prosperity, maybe a small miracle or two.  One thing I’ve learned in life is that no matter what we hope or plan for, be prepared to improvise and go with the changes!

Vision Through Words has been posting poetry and essays written by visually impaired and blind writers since 2012. We have been lucky to have writers from all walks of life share their feelings and experiences in the blind community of the world.  As it turns out, we are all more alike than different.  We’ve read pieces that have made us laugh and made us cry and always something we could relate with.  As with all things, nothing is forever – things end and new things begin.  With that in mind, Vision Through Words will not be posting new submissions.  The site will be online so you can still enjoy archived writings and leave comments until spring.

I would like to personally thank each and every writer and reader that has visited this blog site and made it possible to continue as long as it has. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I wish you a Happy & Healthy New Year full of love & peace.  And never stop reading, writing and being creative in whatever way you love best.

My wishes for happiness and peace to you,

Stella & Vision Through Words


Visions In The Dark

19 Feb

by Stella De Genova

I am involved in an art show this May that is called Visions In The Dark.  It will highlight the artwork of myself and 2 other visually impaired artists, Angie Geis and David Simpson.  It’s an exciting project that we hope will bring an understanding to the community that even if an individual has physical limitations, there is no limit to creativity.  Not only will there be artwork, there will also be music recorded by blind artists and some of the essays and poetry from this blog.  What I will be doing is re-posting some of our most popular pieces which I will be displaying at the art show.   Enjoy – again!
