I can remember my first pair of glasses that I wore at four years old. They were 1980s-style (too-big-for-your-face) with a little cluster of strawberries on the arms near the hinge.

When I was growing up, most people I knew must have had pretty good vision. I say that because contact lenses weren’t the norm like they are today. If a person couldn’t see well, that person wore glasses. And most of the people I knew didn’t.
Sure, my grandparents wore glasses, as did the lady at the front desk of our library, and probably a couple of…Continue

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
A poem by the great Langston Hughes.…
