Through my glasses blurrily
Progress on 3 Red Trees. It's small enough to fit on my scanner, which is smaller than I usually work. Partly because of this I've had problems seeing my work today. I'm short sighted so I have to get close to my work to progress with it. Converseley I'm mid 40's now and I have Presbyopia developing - so although I want to get close to my work I have to take my specs off to see it clearly. Without my specs I have to virtually have my nose against the paper, which isn't the most comfortable position to be in for long.
I'm considering ways of getting round this problem. I don't want to go varifocal (it's bad enough having one frame around the world, splitting that frame in 2 again would be just unbearable). On a more positive day I'm sure I'll think my way through it. Just wait for that more positive day then I suppose.
I'm enjoying listening to the Cazalets on R4. Such a sensitively acted piece, the sort of thing radio drama does beautifully.
