Most of us are not consciously aware of passing time and how we are aging. We can see or hear the changes in our family and friends. Most of us don’t see the changes in ourselves.

An MRI scan is no fun for anyone. But for a person with a hearing and vision impairment, like fellow author Carol Farnsworth, thanks to medical staff who don’t know how to help people with such disabilities, it’s a more horrendous experience than it needs to be. In the post I’m sharing today, Carol tells her story. I encourage you to read my review of Carol’s poetry collection, Leaf Memories, here, and after doing so, I hope you’ll buy a copy of this delightful book. Now, here’s Carol.

I sit alone in a changing room, waiting for a MRI brain scan to look for the cause of my stroke. I wait, for someone to tell me what to do. Finally a technician tells me to strip and put on hospital scrubs and white socks.

A Fiddler on the Roof, September 30, 2021 #SocialMediaMonday

After reading today’s shared post, you probably won’t get that tune out of your head right away. Through her prose and poetry, Carol offers insight on being aware of your surroundings, especially if your vision is limited or nonexistent. Enjoy!

traveling up and down the blind highway

We are having a new roof put on our house. Bright and early on Wednesday morning, we were greeted with five young people on our roof. They scraped the old shingles off and prepared the surface for new one.

My listening was overloaded!

I thought back to the musical, “Fiddler On The Roof.” The noise reminded me of the line, “Our lives are as precarious as a fiddler on the roof.” It doesn’t take much change to upset our day.

We are comfortably set in our ways. Perhaps we need a change in our day to shake us…
