Excuse the pun on voting procedures, but I couldn’t think of a better title.
I have mentioned the onset of cataracts before. It has stopped me being able to drive at night, and has also inhibited long periods at the computer, or watching TV. Over the last couple of weeks, the dizzy spells brought on by having vertigo have been compounded by this cloudy vision, to the extent that it has become quite uncomfortable to concentrate for any length of time.
The last visit to the eye clinic brought the news that both eyes will have to be operated on, once the cataracts have hardened enough to allow removal. My right eye has become quite problematical in recent weeks, and it is only the ability to combine it with my better left eye, that allows me to still read and type. I have a feeling that they will operate on this eye later this year. In isolation, it is similar to looking through a net curtain, so I doubt that it will be long before it is considered ready for surgery.
So the point of telling you all this news, is that my posting has been, and will continue to be, erratic at best. I predicted that my blog would suffer along with any physical deterioration, and that appears to have been the case. It is unlikely that I will be able to concentrate long enough to finish long fiction posts, and it remains to be seen whether or not I will be able to take any photographs worth publishing. Despite have the ‘big-key’ black on yellow keyboard for my P.C., trying to look at the posts on the edit screen is becoming tiring and frustrating.
Therefore, if I am not posting that much, please bear with me. I will do my best to continue to follow and comment, but if I seem to have gone on a ‘go-slow’, or disappear for a while, you will know why.
