The point I'm trying to make is in the last few weeks, I've find myself squinting when I'm trying to read a map, book, directions the text on my phone. I feel like a secret agent attempting to decipher the letter whether it looks like an "a" or "e". By the time I'm done, I'm sweating buckets and I still have five more letters to decipher. Okay, I'm exaggerating but still it's getting to the point where I'm thinking, I've to go to my optometrist/enemy to have my eyes checked again. Maybe it's just the late nights working and staring at the computer, reading the manuscripts, having tired eyes that's making me doubt my super 20/20 vision. My pride tells me I can wait cause just the other day I was able to read an entire page without squinting so I'm still okay. I'm resisting, I know.
Whether it's resisting the changes in my eye sight, the backache, who knows. Isn't it a state of mind anyways? If you think you are young, you stay young.
BUT I realize that I'm not 18 anymore and I can fight it as much as I want but I won't be able to stop the change. Next to my kids and husband, making art is something I love and have done all my life since I was a toddler. I can't imagine not being able to see what I'm doing. So when the time comes and if I have to visit my beloved optometrist, I will do so. Do whatever it takes as long as you can get back to your drawing board but always take care of your body because without it, you can't do anything else.
Till the next time.
