Blind Man Is One Talented Painter

  • 0

Do you watch the evening news? No? Well, no matter: the Internet is, among other things, a morning-after party of last night’s news stories, which are often stories that have been on the Internet for ages. But last night’s CBS Evening News ran an original and pretty moving story about John Bramblitt, a husband, father and artist who went blind at the age of 30 due to complications from epilepsy. Bramblitt has figured out how to paint just by feeling the paints: he says different colors have different textures. He’s also painted some stunning likenesses of people (including Tony Hawk) just by feeling their faces as he works. And the results appear to be not only uplifting but actually good. TC mark

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
