i've needed glasses and/or contacts since the age of six. without them, i'm pretty useless beyond 4 feet. i'm a visual creature. i live and breathe through my eyes. and i really wish i had better "unassisted" vision. but at the same time, i've kind of fallen in love with the blur. the soft mystery of the world when my eyes are bare. the way the light seems to take on an ethereal quality and just bleed into objects and forms. an ocean of soft shapes and bokeh and liquid light. how could that be bad? (i mean unless you're driving of course ;) sometimes my broken eyes remind me of the light effects i can achieve with polaroid. and sometimes the blur just feels more natural.
