If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?  Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

I currently wear glasses. I had retina surgery on my Left eye in Jan. 2018. Prior to that due to a minor stroke caused by extreme high blood pressure I could only see gray, light and dark. After the operation I was able to see some details. Now the sight is once again worsening in that eye but I have neither the time nor the money to return to the eye doctor. Fortunately the brain has a mental map of everything we have seen from birth so it fills it what should be there. I just rely on my right eye. No glasses or contacts could really help me. I need a miracle from God.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?


Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

K-12 was not exactly easy. I excelled in English and History.  It would have been better if all math courses could have been avoided. I hate math. Always have. Always will. I suck at math. Red marks and F’s in every math course. If not for the New York State Regents exam I would have never graduated from High School. I have a math block.

College was great. Hooray and Cheers for Marymount Manhattan College!!  Lots of work and challenges but I Loved every minute of it except those stupid dreaded math courses. My Chinese friends at my previous workplace helped me. Those Ladies were brilliant at math and they also had plenty of patience because when it comes to numbers I’m stupid and thick as a brick.  Thank goodness in the over 40 years I’ve been in the work force I’ve never used algebra or geometry.  Both were a total waste of time.

Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

Both!  Two weeks. One devoted to an organized tour the other on a cruise. Took a cruise back in 2004 and Loved it!  Had a Wonderful time!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful that my African co-worker had a healthy baby girl. Her name is Laura Destiny! Looking forward to next weekend, good warm weather and more photography opportunities!!

    1. Thanks! That photo was taken on Captains Night. Nothing like a LBD (Little Black Dress) for such an occasion. Carnival had great cruises. Lately they seem to have problems with their ships so my next cruise will be on a different cruise line.

    1. Thanks! As for my vision I put it all in God’s hands. I’ve asked the Lord to allow me enough sight to read the Bible, pursue my photography and to take care of my brother Stephen. God has kept His Word.

    1. Thanks Cee!! I got through it. My brain does not do math. However I made the Dean’s List and graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with a 3.7 GPA!! In about 2 years I will retire so being dumb at math does not mean that I cannot or have not succeeded in other areas. My true Loves are English, History and Sociology!! ❤

  1. Im number challenged as well, but aced math until sophmore year in H.S. were my brain just suddenly turned off that part. I had a similar experience as you ” If not for the New York State Regents exam I would have never graduated from High School”
    That’s a lovely portrait of you. I saw you commented that you are smaller now, I hope you are getting that high blood pressure in check! That is no joke. Best wishes to you and yours.

  2. Wonderful photo! It must have been a very fun trip! … I am the same with math…hate it…never understood it at all. Dyscalculia is what they call a math block that your brain just can’t process it. I’m pretty sure I have this, too. Hope your weekend has been good. 🙂
