#21. grow a new eye

Paul is in Dubai at the moment.  He has sent me an email with the link to a fascinating story of eye loss.

Writer Tanya Vlach suffered facial trauma and eye loss after a car accident.

Her story describes some of the feelings experienced during the years that followed.

I just love the way this story is written.  This is someone who is really in touch with their emotions.  I think being able to put all those feelings down is a great skill to have.

We try to find stories like these and share them with our clients.   Eye loss is uncommon experience and reading about how others have dealt with it can be very helpful.

I recommend you take a few minutes to  read #21.grow a new eye.
