    Every Moment

    Do you mind if I ask what happened to your vision?

    I was eight, swinging a plastic sword around on my bed. I hit the light bulb above the bed, a hot piece of glass went right in my eye. Been blind in that eye ever since.

    Sorry I keep saying “what”, I lost my hearing in both ears because of an accident.

    It’s okay mam. My wife would…[Read more]
