This is POST #201. I have updated my FIRST POST that appeared on
Walking by Inner Vision – December 29, 2009 to September 16, 2018
Walking by Inner Vision, my new blog will discuss issues of sight loss and blindness as I am experiencing them daily. Life as an artist and author, changed for me nearly 2 years ago, in October 2007. The cause of my sudden and profound sight loss was Ischemic Optic Neuropathy.
This happens when oxygen is shut off to the brain. The Optic Nerve begins to die due to lack of oxygen. The cause in unknown and there in no treatment once it happens. It’s a mystery!
I am a retired Professor of Fine Arts and Humanities, Geneva College, Beaver Falls, PA. I lectured in Humanities; taught studio art courses; taught English Literature courses. I gave conference presentations on Contemporary Literature and Fine Art. I created a month-long summer studies program and took students to Europe each year. I created and presented fine arts exhibitions of my own work as well as for other artists.
I authored a book
Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage
which was inspired by my summer travels in Europe. To compliment that book, I also created and managed a 3-year long traveling exhibition of my art works created during those summer travels. That work traveled across the US to galleries and museums. It was called
The Trunk Show
Paintings – Wood Cut Prints –
Collage – Photography – Drawings
My LIFE-PURPOSE is teaching and
sharing my passion for Art & Literature..
The REASON I created this blog is to
explore topics in
Fine Arts, Humanities, Christian Faith,
Sight Loss, and Literature.
Thank you for joining in this journey with me today!
The REASON for the name of this blog – Walking by Inner Vision – is because I began to learn how to walk and live my life in a new way, using the inner vision that we all have. My journey, so far, has been an EXTRAORDINARY journey over the past two years.
This blog will feature ARTICLE that EXPLORE and ENHANCE our Inner Vision. This BLOG is a CELEBRATION of LIFE –
I am passionate about everything that I loved BEFORE sight loss. I’m crazy about VISUAL ART. Wild about POETRY. Over-the-Moon for literature. My mind takes flight and I SOAR with Philosophy. I dig history. I DANCE to MUSIC.
.Nothing is more delightful to me as traveling and meeting exciting new people. I PLAN to meet a LOT of NEW people here on my BLOG.
Most of all, I find that I CHERISH the stories of others who have had vision loss and learned how they do things and how they now see the world. I will share my WORLD VIEW and my VISION through this blog.
I am always open to hearing from others. You may have sight loss, or you may have a friend of family member who has sight loss.
