To my blog’s visitors.
Some of my regular visitors may have wondered why I have not made new posts, visited Your blog or answered to Your comments for a long time.
Nine days ago I lost sight from my left eye. The loss of sight was total. Doctor said that there is no hope to see with my eye. He made everything what man can do “rescue” my sight. Now after nine day, I have a slight hope, because I started to see some shapes which seem to be in dark with my left eye. It is not much, but maybe it is a start to see more in future.
What comes to my blogging, I’ll publish later this year three carefully selected posts which I made before this case. Then I’ll visit everyone’s blogs who leave comment on my blog.
While waiting my new post, I give here three links to my old “forgotten” posts. They are my personal favorites! Enjoy:

All the best to You.

Dear readers, I thank You everyone who supported me of the injury of my left eye. I never could not understand that so many people have warm heart, care about other humans, pray for them, give encourage etc. Thank You! I am also very grateful to my dear wife who encourages me daily and helps me in daily activities.
I can see a little bit. By this I mean following: Imagine being in a twilight room. In that room I see some lights, things, human beings, colors, movement and I recognize those objects which I see. I cannot focus my sight. To see directly straight ahead is not possible and thus I have to turn a little bit my head that I recognize things I see. Next month I’ll get eye glasses. Earlier I did not needed them, because with the right eye I saw precisely far away and with the left I saw close. My brains processed my sight so that I did not needed eye glasses when reading or driving. It seems that the recovering has stopped at this level during since few days, but anyway this is a good start for my recovery and I hope that when time passes there would be more recovery.
I was mentally depressed many weeks, but last week I got suddenly forces to continue my blogging. Earlier this autumn I started to learn Portuguese as well as Anja. Our teacher a young Brazilian Lady is very inspiring who makes Portuguese vivid and with it I mean that her classes are not dull, but full of life, joy, music and culture from Brazil. She is one of the best teachers we ever have had. Anja and I wait with eagerness every Wednesday her language classes.
Starting next post I’ll add Portuguese translations to my posts. I know that there will be grammatical errors, but to learn something new at this age (69) keeps my brains “spry” and my mind “young”. My motto: “doing is learning!”.
My next post will be on Friday, 28th November, until then. Starting from that day I’ll publish posts biweekly.

On Wednesday, 4th November 1013, I was in hospital inspected by eye specialist. The doctor told after long investigations of both of my eyes, that the right eye is in excellent condition, meaning that I could start again to drive, but regulations are that I must wait half a year.
What comes to the left eye. It never will be better from that level is now. I can see things, colors, movement etc only with the left half of it and all that like being in a dark room. What is missing is that I cannot focus my sight. Focusing would be nice. Sigh. All right; it is okay.
My son said to me nicely: “remember that You have one eye which allows you to see properly”. Thank You my son Kari.
Next brand new and cool post will be on Friday 13th 2013. Until then.
