I'm continually surprised by people telling me I'm inspiring. OK wow, that sounds like maybe I'm being prideful, but I'm honestly not. I'm just a mostly blind woman living my life, refusing to let a little thing like low vision get me down.
After a bunch of years after my first book I'll Push You Steer with my fabulous co-author Bonnie Tesh, people come up to me and tell me how much they loved the story of the ironing board for the blind, or the story about how I can't get a man with a dog.
And people ask me how I do various things or laugh at my travel tales with Molly Flagtail, my former guide dog. So, I decided to have some fun and start a weekly podcast called "Low Vision Hijinx." Yeah, I create podcasts in my spare time, for fun!
Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Accepted into the iTunes Store in Record Time - 96 Minutes!
OK technically maybe 96 minutes isn't record time, I don't know for sure; but honestly, I thought I had a couple days to let people know it was coming! Yes, 96 minutes from "under review" to "published in the Tunes Store." Here's the cool cover art:
The Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Logo
I designed this cover myself! (Thank you, Canva.com for making me look good!) The cover needs to be:
- readable as a teensy icon in iTunes
- Relevant to the show's theme and content
I chose a nice readable font. When I found the adorable bumblebee with a magnifying glass, I decided that was the perfect graphic. Anyone with limited eyesight has to do things that seem impossible or at least extremely difficult.
Bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly, by all the laws of physics. Yet they do. This is a real world, every day miracle. Perfect symbol.
Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Episodes
Each show will be under 10 minutes, except perhaps for something superbly spectacularly special.
- Episode 1: That's where you get to know me a little better.
- Episode 2: "Just Growl and Mean It" - getting rid of stalker.
- Episode 3: The Perfect Travel Roommate" - That's what Bonnie calls me, because she gets to hog the bathroom while I put my makeup on in the dark. 😀

Why this podcast?
I'm doing this to share a message of hope and joy. Limited eyesight need NEVER limit your life! Everyone will be touched with some degree of eyesight loss with age or with illness or accident. That need not slow you down one bit!
I hope these stories will give you a laugh and something to think about.
