I am blind, and I hate it. It stinks. But life is still sweet. I have multiple sclerosis, and that stinks too, but life is still sweet. These are my musings.

  1. Hi Steve. Indeed: ‘Go outside, and stay there’. Funny to find oneself quoted…all best,


    • Hi John. Good to hear from you. It is equally weird to get a message from someone you have quoted. Almost like getting a comment about his mother from Hamlet! Love the books, by the way. Congrats on the Wainwright prize. Keep going with the re-wilding. Steve
