I have to smile at my sons. I love both of them. but they are at the stage where they need glasses. they keep holding things at arms length to read.
Why do we hate to give in? Oh, I know, because that means we are getting older. That is a fact, normally if we live long enough, our eyes will get bad. Some bad enough for cataract surgery.
Unfortunately, I have had both eyes operated on and if the light is right I do not need reading glasses now. But it is no problem to remember when I needed reading glasses. I had no problem going to bi-focals and wearing glasses all the time, but my buddy Sonny never gave in, he always carried the reading glasses and would take them out to read a tape or small print.
I remember reading about a man who was a proponent of eye exercise. According to him he had a pulley set up were he sat in a room and drew a target from twelve feet away to 4 inches away from his eyes slowly 30 minutes a day to exercise his focus ability. It sounded reasonable to me but I could not spend that time for eye exercise. Shucks it is hard to make my self do any kind of exercise for thirty minutes.
That brings up a subject I am very strong on theoretically, but not in practice, Yoga. I believe if folk would do 30 minutes of Yoga daily they would remain in better shape, I just cannot make myself do it. Yoga is basically stretching. do you find yourself limited in turning your head? I do.
Sherry attended a Yoga class in Key West while we were there and I exercised with her at night. It was good. We did not keep it up. We do not remain anywhere long enough to get in a class, I guess we need to work out something that will work. Does anyone who read this blog do Yoga? Is it working for you?
Yeah, I know I am full of questions tonight. thanks for coming by the Blog.
