So, what’s the good, the bad, and the not so nifty about going blind at 50? Oh, I CAN tell you! How much time do you have? An hour, or two, or twenty? Ha ha! Well, last week I spoke with Tara Briggs, the host of “Ability Stories” Podcast. We had a great conversation, which made not one, but TWO great podcast episodes for your listening pleasure!
Tara contacted me a week or so after I published my last blog, “Thoughts for my child Who now has a blind parent”. Being a blind parent herself, she wanted to hear my story and possibly talk a little bit about this recent blog post, which had created some chaos in the blind community. I’m always happy to be a part of any podcast interview…I’m not shy. I know! No shock there! But, I made it very clear that I was not interested in any heated debate on the capabilities of blind parents. Nope , nope, noopity, nope. She assured me that that was not her intention, although, it was THAT blog post that caught her attention! After a few more messages… I agreed to do the interview.
Tara was born blind and I was not. That difference between us made for a meaningful discussion. It’s good stuff, so be sure to listen!! MANY thanks to Tara Briggs for her open mind and kind heart.♥️
