The April 9-16 issue of Maclean's has an item talking about a study that says wild cougars have returned to Ontario. Buck, I could have told them that.

In the same issue there is an article about a new restaurant in Toronto called Actinalite, named after a hamlet near where I live. It was so cool to read that.

The April 23 issue of Maclean's has a review of Marilyn Robinson's new book of essays and mentions how she talks about appreciating whatever comes before one's eyes. As someone who grew up reading whatever CNIB or other organizations for the blind sent me, I can totally identify with this.

Do you have eye problems? My eyes were as good as any I had ever heard of for the first 30-some years of my life. For I could see as well as far away as I could up close, which was phenomenal. Not anymore, and I have been having some difficulty adjusting, which has greatly reduced my online activities.

Actually, I have been blind since birth. I use screenreading software to use the internet. I'm not as savvy as I would like to be with some internet things but I keep exploring new things all the time.

Hope the blog looks OK.

Be assured that it looks wonderful. So, you really do have some experience with the apparent unfairness of life in this world--don't you? Of course, I am not going to admit that you may have had it harder than me. (LOL?)
