May I invite you to join the 5% blind club? Remember that 5% is only an average. I was about ten when I learned that I can’t play baseball, with the bump on my head to punctuate the point. I can’t do everything I want to do, everywhere I want, as is true for everyone else, blind or not. We are all limited in one way or another. Even so, getting down to 5% blind on average works fine for me and will likely work for you too.

Oh, I didn’t know that. You are too old, too lazy, too afraid, too impatient, too tired, and too sure you can’t do it to consider the 5% blind club. I’m reminded of my advisor in college when I was whining to her that college is just too hard. She told me that, with the possible exception of my mother, no one really cares one way or the other whether I graduate. She smiled and added that I would have to handle all of the caring for myself.

That’s it. If you were expecting some magical advice or an easier way, you’re out of luck. Just know that your slot in the 5% blind club is there just waiting for you. I sincerely hope I see you there real soon.
