we do what we have to do
this local tells me that he has been at this same coffee shop every morning for the last four years... and his two sisters may have the same habit. anyway, he was "diagnosed as legally blind in the sixth grade," and, if i understood correctly, the same disease that killed comedian Bernie Mac is what has affected his sight (maybe, his lungs too??) he is an extremely friendly guy that does love to chat if you happen to sit next to him.
(by the way, for those of you keeping up, i did not reach my goal of getting "caught up" to align my posts and portrait dates... i actually redefined my goal. i am not far behind, and it is feeling right and not rushed.)
