In Context—Just for Fun

March 17, 2021


Somedays my eyes do better than others. The double vision isn’t as bad and I even sketch without my glasses, getting something that comes close to what I saw.

Even in 2019 I was learning to live with the absence of dependable and repeatable results. Then it would drive me nuts and I would mutter and stomp around the house. (Since it wasn’t the Pandemic Dick wasn’t around to hear me do that; I worked at home before the Pandemic, he only started working at home because of the Pandemic.)

In the intervening time I’ve been able to work out a couple things that help my eye situation. Wearing a long-billed ball cap throughout my waking hours is the number one thing I can do to prolong the time I have with OK vision.

Everything else is up for grabs. But I keep refining things. Trying new things—remind myself to not over work my eyes one day and expect them to be good the next. Sometimes I even taunt myself by not wearing my glasses at all, since they are of little use.

Overall I’m simply grateful I have time and inclination to draw. And that I’m so stubborn.

    I’m glad you could work out ways to work around the eye issues. Being stubborn is a generally undervalued asset.

      Thanks Sharon, and yes it can be undervalued. I’ve celebrated my stubbornness all my life, usually in direct response to people telling me I was such when they wanted me to do something their way.
