It was a cold, crisp Friday morning as I pulled on my gloves and headed down our sunny driveway to start my day. I had a spring in my step as I headed into the sunrise with all the joys of a new day playing hopefully in my minds eye. Our complex was peaceful and I presumed all residents were out an about, so the “hello” from the shadow bumped me right off my rails. I let out a whoop, quickly followed by a laugh and I think my neighbour got a bigger fright than I did.
Oh, the joys of low vision and not being able to see anything in a shadow!
We both recovered with friendly apologies and explanations…and now he knows that my mobility cane is not just an optional accessory.
Low vision awareness, happena one awkward moment at a time.
