ReadViewThink – January 14, 2020

Foreign matter in left eye is lengthening time taken to do this blog post. Grrrr. Hopefully soon, I’ll get the eyelash or minute particle flushed out of my eye. Frustrating that I can’t see what is causing eye irritation. What a way for the morning to begin. Blagh!

Good news is I can read with the other eye. Can’t imagine not being able to read. The somber thought of losing sight in both eyes makes me think how fortunate I am to have sight at all.

Okay, enough about this newest minor inconvenience and on to some of the articles I found interesting to read.

Oh, and may your day start off better than mine. Yah!
