So...a couple of weeks ago, I graduated from reading glasses to all-the-time glasses.
As many of you who have gone through this transition before me already know, there are some adjustments. The weirdest one for me is the interruption of my peripheral vision--as I get close to the inside edges of the lenses, there's a curvature; if I try to glance to the side with just an eyeroll, it's jagged at the outside edges of the lenses. When I'm trying to look at both my choir and the score on the music stand in front of me, the frames create a dividing line between them. Weird.
So I'm adjusting by moving my head more; this is a really minor inconvenience, but it got me to thinking about the way we see things...about how healthy it is to have some sort of challenge to our accustomed point of view, once in a while. And about how we can choose how much significance we assign to edges and dividing lines.
I'm just sayin'.
