Now I’m Not Getting Any Work Done…

This blogging thing is fun, but very distracting.  Fun to suddenly have an inbox full of old high school friends and Earlham professors wondering where the heck I’ve been for 20 years.

In response to my post, my colleague Steve Kuusisto wrote a bit on his blog about his experience deciding to have surgery to become less blind…err…more sighted…umm…more visually impaired?  Anyway, he explains it himself in his lovely writing voice at http://www.planet-of-the-blind.com/2012/10/disability-and-the-function-disjunction-department.html.  Thanks for the shout out, Steve!  Happy to return the favor.

Now I’m going to get work done.  Really.

    Wendy,
    Thanks for sharing the link. I really learned more about what you and other have been experiencing. When watching and listening to the video the background noise drive me crazy. I have a much greater appreciation for hearing loss since taking this course. I appreciate the time you take in sharing your experience with us. I am glad you have been able to successfully adjust your implants and HEAR AGAIN!! Hip Hip Hurray! I very happy for you when you were able to hear your son talking with you. This afternoon seems lovely, hope you can go out and listen to the trees and leaves falling. Enjoy the rest of the weekend while I am in reading course materials! However, I am taking this evening off for dinner. It’s are wedding anniversary.
    See you Monday.
    Katie

    As long as you’re collecting long-lost friends and colleagues, I came across your blog (actually, Rachel did and pointed it out to me) and just wanted to stop by and say “Hi.” It’s been 20 years since we graduated (I know because our reunion is in just 2 weeks) and nearly that long since you and I have been in touch, but I’m still really excited to hear about your implants. I just wanted to mention (although it goes without saying) that I’m sure that they won’t in any way detract from your ability to do your job — even if the DID magically erase your disability (which they don’t), they don’t remove your understanding of what it is like to have a disability. I hope you’re well — contact me sometime, my contact info is on my blog/.

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
