The greater the difficulty, the more the glory in surmounting it.
At least that is what I have to constantly tell myself as I am still struggling with this Iritis. I have not been on the computer in days, however it is necessary from time-to-time to see if there are important emails to respond to, or…whatever.
I made mention to a friend, recently, that Beethoven MUST have been the MOST GENIUS dude ever! While being almost totally deaf, he composed music.
I sit here, and if I close my left eye, and with my reading glasses on, my right eye sees the computer screen in a heavy fog, not able to read text. I wonder in blurry melancholy, will my right eye return to health? I wonder…is this the medications causing the smear of color across the computer screen?
I wonder, what good is a photographer who cannot see clearly, or who cannot tell if an image is in good focus?
Yeah…I guess I am a bit down in the dumps for now.
Worse yet is that I feel tinges of pain in the left eye, a little at least. Having iritis in two eyes at the same time is like bloody-intolerable.
I just have to remember Epicurus’s words, especially when things seem at their worst.
Believe it or not, I have, during this storm-of-fog, composed some photographs, and have finished one abstract expressionism painting. I am not totally sure what the finer details look like in either art-form, because I cannot see the finer details at the moment…that will have to wait.
I am hoping for a full recovery, and that my eyesight is returned to what it was (at least) prior to this hell-storm-case of iritis.
I wish I could spend more time on the computer so I can catch up with my friends’ blogs here at WP: That will have to wait too.
