From the editor:



Hello readers,
I hear it is a new year. They say it is 2021, but I do not feel any difference. Do you? Starting out with a bang so to speak. What is this country coming
to? We can note the year date of 2021 on our checks, and correspondence, but well, it feels like 2020 is still with us. I know this may sound a bit down,
but what can you say. I hope and pray that our circumstances will get better soon. I am thankful that we have distractions to go to. I have found old Password
Plus game shows from 1979 into the early 80s. They are on YouTube and Amazon has some too. I am having the greatest fun listening and guessing the passwords
and the word puzzles with the contestants. My husband and I both enjoy listening to the shows and remembering the freedom we had back then with what we
said. Just laugh out loud fun. It really puts me in a wonderful mood. I am also enjoying remembering the old actors that were on those shows too. Makes
me feel happy. A great way to escape this world.
I also love listening to birds. I mean I listen to all kinds of YouTube videos with nature sounds of birds, maybe with some water sounds or rain. I find
that it lowers my blood pressure when I listen to these beautiful bird sounds in the background while I do housework or computer work. I highly recommend
it. I also turn on evening cricket sounds after it gets dark, even though it might be cold and snowing here in the middle of winter, I find these nature
sounds lifting my mood.
I have a premium subscription with YouTube, so I do not get any commercial interruptions. It is very reasonable, and a family plan will allow you to have
up to six members on the subscription.
I also find that a bit of time with moving my body also helps me stay present and lifts my mood too. There are many ways to do this. Dancing to music,
listening to You Tube exercise videos. I found one that is for seniors and I am really enjoying it.
I also found a new exercise gadget and bought one from Best Buy on a 12 month no interest plan of around $30 a month. It is wonderful. It is a CUBII which
is an elliptical machine that fits under your desk. You could easily move it anywhere in your home. I have the model that has Bluetooth and works with
an app on my iPhone. The app is not really needed to use the machine, but you can connect it to your fit bit or iPhone Health kit, which is what I did.
You can track your progress and even share with others and a lot more. I am just getting started with it. I can now exercise while sitting at my desk.

I am sure some of you craft readers are wondering what happened to Phyllis Campbell. I am very saddened to tell you that Phyllis is in Hospice care. She
will surely be missed by many. She began writing for the Blind Post in September 2013. She has authored several wonderful books. She also wrote for other
braille craft magazines. I am hoping to compile all her Blind Post articles together along with a list of her books. I do not know how long it will take
me, but when I am finished, I will upload it to the website as a download. Not sure of all the logistics of doing this, but I will let you know when it
is done. If any of you have any comments or extra info you would like me to include, please email me.
Greg Capps will be now writing craft articles for Yarn, hook, and needle. He was sharing the column over the last year or so with Phyllis. Please feel
free to email him with any craft ideas or questions you might have for future articles. His email is listed in this month’s craft article, which is towards
the end of this month’s news.
I hope you will enjoy reading this issue of the Blind Post and feel free to share it with friends and family. Please be safe and keep yourselves well.
Peace, Love and Joy!

Blind Man Walking



By Joshua Loya

A new year. Everything’s different. Right? I wish it were so. People fighting and bickering, everyone 100% convinced they are right and have God or science
or both on their side. I posit the following with the hope of finding some unity in the midst of these trying times.
Reality is what reality is. We can wish it were different, but it doesn’t make it so. Just because we believe something is true doesn’t mean it is. We
can believe something is a lie. That doesn’t make it false. Reality of it and our perception of it are not the same. No matter how correct we believe we
might be, there always exists the possibility that we are missing crucial information that provides context. Important detail. Providing context does not
necessarily make the thing we are questioning good or bad. It only provides context.
I struggled a lot last year. I hesitate to even mention 2020 by name but pretending it didn’t happen doesn’t make it so. We can never go back. Nothing
can undo the tragedy and heart ache that has befallen humanity. There is still hope.
Joseph Campbell popularized the concept of the hero’s journey. I have been aware of the concept for a while, but I am just now studying the idea in earnest
via Campbell’s book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces. One of the ideas is that the iconic stories and myths found in cultures all over the world follow
a similar pattern which reflects the life stages we experience as individuals. At one point in the growth of a hero, after they have gained their strength
and power, slayed their dragons, and stood victorious, they experience more trials which seem unbearable. During this moment, there is often an intense
desire to go back to the way things were before. The problem is that the hero has been changed through the adventures and experiences that have brought
them to this point. They cannot go back. Things will never be the same. They are no longer the unknown farm boy or the long-lost princess. They are now
the powerful Jedi or warrior queen with a completely different set of challenges than when they first started. What lays before them seems daunting, and
they doubt their ability to persevere.
What is true for the hero is also true for us. We have made it through every challenge we have faced until this point in time. We are not unscathed or
uninjured, but we are still here. We have the benefit of experience to help us continue forward. Like the hero, we have become stronger or more capable
in ways we have not been prior to now. The obstacles in front of us only seem impossible because they are new. Defeat only comes when we give up. Victory
may not come in a way we expect or even want, but it will come, if we but press on toward the horizon. The only way is through.
You might say to me, “This is all fine and good, but what do I do right now when everyone around me is bickering, fighting, and hurting each other?”. It’s
not an easy fix. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I do have a couple of ideals that help guide my actions. I think they are universal enough
to transcend politics, religion, or anything else that might divide us.
1. Love deeply.
2. Live fully.
3. Craft stories that can be told for ages.
If there is sufficient interest, I’ll expand on these ideals in a future article. Thank you for investing the time to read my words. It is the one resource
you can never get back, and I am humbled you have chosen to spend your time on me. If you would like to connect with me, please email me at joshua@adventuremind.net.
Also, for those of you with access to BARD or Bookshare, The Hero with A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell is available in both places.


Driving Miss Donna



“All Things Electronic”
(Episode 12)
by: Lynn Anderson

With this New Year of 2021, many things have changed in our lives. Now, whenever I go to the grocery store, I have to wait in line with dozens of other
people due to social distancing and only a set number of people being allowed in the store. I have to wear a face mask at all times while in the store
and also in the parking lot, and have to be aware of personal space and try not to walk in anyone’s space while I am looking at items on a grocery shelf.
I can no longer bring my reusable bags into the store, I have to keep them in my car, and bag my own groceries when I bring the cart back to my trunk,
or else pay for each paper bag that the grocery clerk uses. I don’t know how it is in other states, but this is how things work in California right now.
Donna can no longer go shopping because of the many restrictions and lack of personal shoppers. Donna has always been highly independent and done all of
her own shopping, but now I am shopping for both of us. So many things have changed for Donna.
But one thing that has not changed for Donna, is the use of personal electronic items. She has always been an avid user of anything electronic, even back
to the early days when she was a young child. Now that so much is available in this electronic device era, Donna is a very happy camper indeed. She has
her iPhone, iPad, Victor Reader Stream, electronic assistants throughout her apartment, RUBY device, pen friend for labelling her spices and other things
that might need to have some kind of electronic signature. When we watch movies together, we are using Audio Descriptive, and she uses Voiceover on all
of her electronic devices. OK, I totally get it, but sometimes, it all just sounds like a bunch of noise and I can’t make out what each device is attempting
to communicate.
When I answer my phone, I just swipe my finger one time. But that is not even close to the gymnastics that Donna can perform on her phone by using a series
of swipes, taps, double taps, one finger swipes, two finger swipes, three finger swipes and even four finger swipes! I have no idea what she is doing,
perhaps contacting some device in outer space! It is all way beyond me! I’ve gone to some training classes with Donna as she is learning how to get even
more out of her electronic devices, but I usually just sit in the corner totally lost and confused.
But even I, a total novice in this new electronic universe, still have one useful function remaining to me that is a winner every time! I know where all
of the outlets are in Donna’s apartment! This makes me relevant, useful and helpful!
One day not long ago, I got a panicked text from Donna saying that she needed my help immediately! (OK, maybe I am exaggerating just a little bit!). I
freaked out a bit because Donna doesn’t usually panic, so I rushed over to her apartment to see what was going on. I wondered if I shouldn’t call the police
first in case she had an intruder or perhaps the fire department in case she had fallen. When I reached her apartment, the door was standing open, which
caused me further panic. As I quickly made my way inside, I couldn’t find Donna at first. That is very strange, I thought, calling out to her. “I’m in
my bedroom!” she called back, so I hurried down the hallway. “Are you OK? Should I call for an ambulance?” She looked at me with a very puzzled expression.
“Why would you want to call an ambulance?” “You texted me that this was an emergency! Are you OK? Did you fall or maybe have a heart attack?” Donna cringed.
“No, it’s worse than that! All of my devices are shutting down because of low batteries!”
“Low batteries?” I asked. “You sent me an emergency text because you have low batteries? Are you kidding?” “No!” she said, “I’m not kidding, everyone of
my devices is on low batteries! This is a major problem!” My heartbeat was finally beginning to calm down, so I sat in one of her chairs and gave her “The
Look”. OK, giving Donna “The Look” didn’t really help any because she can’t see the details of my face, but I thought for sure that she could feel “The
Look”! I took a deep breath, wondering if Donna had maybe lost her mind and needed to see a Psychiatrist! Maybe I needed to see a Psychiatrist! “So,” I
tried to say calmly, “if every device you own is on low batteries, I would have to first ask you why? Secondly, I would ask you, why don’t you just plug
the devices in to solve this emergency problem?”
“You just don’t get it,” she said with a lot of frustration in her voice. “No, I guess I don’t,” I answered, not truly getting this E.L.E. (Extinction
Level Event). I love that term, Extinction Level Event, as it is used in a lot of disaster movies, and I really love disaster movies! Crazy, I know! “So,
help me to get it,” I finally said feeling a level of frustration myself. “I have 5 devices that need charging, and I can only reach outlets to charge
2 of them! I can’t see the other outlets to charge the other 3 devices! I use all of those devices everyday and I can’t live without any of them! So, I
called you, my best friend, to help me out, and you just don’t get it!!!” Well, I felt pretty terrible, because it is true, due to vision problems and
mobility issues, she can’t reach all of her outlets. “OK,” I said, I’ll plug everything in and you should be back up to speed in no time!
I found the other outlets, plugged all of the remaining devices in for charging and met Donna back in her living room. “All done,” I assured her with a
smile on my face. “Thank you!” she said. “That is such a relief!” “You’re welcome, but you didn’t answer my first question.” “What question is that?” she
asked. “The question about how all of your devices became low batteries at the exact same time? How did that happen?” Donna looked at me, shrugged her
shoulders and smiled. “I don’t know.” She answered, and that ended that topic.
That was not the only time that I have received panicked texts about Donna’s many electronic devices needing charging at the same time. But because of
her lack of planning for keeping her devices charged, (I just love a good plan) I have told her many times that she should start a 12-step group for battery
abusers like herself. She could call if B.A.A. for Battery Abusers Anonymous! Like all of my other wonderful ideas and proposals, that went over like a
lead balloon!


Living with low vision



Shining some Light
By Donna Williams

As the end of 2020 approached I found myself sitting here in my apartment alone. I knew it was going to be that way but when I was actually confronted
with the reality I found it hard to accept. This is the first time I’ve spent New Year’s Eve totally alone. When I was growing up my family was with
me and when I moved out on my own I always had friends over to celebrate.
I can’t say that 2020 has treated me particularly well. Sure there were bright spots but for the most part I was glad to see a new year begin. Even though
I couldn’t see friends in person I did my best to spread some joy around. We ended up holding a virtual celebration via phone. It didn’t happen at the
stroke of midnight so I guess we couldn’t call it ringing in the New Year. However that’s what we did. When I have guests here we usually have an Apple
Cider toast once the ball drops. Instead this year we all shared something we wanted to accomplish during 2021. I mentioned the fact that I failed miserably
at meeting my goals. I can’t remember what they all were without looking them up. As I recall I believe there were 7. I told my friends that I gave
up on 2020 right after Easter and I was not making resolutions or setting any new goals this year. Instead I plan on focusing on hopes for 2021. Maybe
if I do that when troubled times come along I can look at my list and be reminded that in darkness there is always light. I also intend to do better at
keeping a gratitude journal. We need a lot of light shining after yesterday’s events and to tell the truth I don’t feel much like writing. So what I
want to do is share my hopes and what I’ve written in my gratitude journal so far.
Here’s what I wrote on New Year’s Eve!
I hope for:
Better health
A more United America
The end of Covid 19
In-person church services
Choir rehearsals and sharing a special time of music with others
To try something new this year
To look at my goals for last year and attempt to meet them.
GRATITUDE JOURNAL
Jan. 1
I am thankful for rain instead of snow. This will give me the opportunity to share some quality mother daughter time over a dinner of ham and potato casserole.

Jan. 2
I am thankful to see the sun. I love how it shines in my windows first thing in the morning.
Jan. 3
I am thankful that my friend ange and I are still close friends after 39 years.
Jan 4
I am thankful to get more groceries. Yay for double fudge chocolate muffins too!
Jan 5
I am thankful Drew will be getting a brace that will help him walk better then he does now. He said when he tried it on he felt like a new man and he
walked faster then he has in a long time. Yay!
Jan. 6
I am thankful I can play games on my computer to de-stress. Taking out my negative emotions on a bot is so much fun. I am also grateful that when I sang
solo in front of a group my voice didn’t give out on me.
I know some of the above entries may leave you with questions but I wanted to copy them as they were originally written. As I said before I don’t have
any funny stories this month and in fact I almost wrote to Lori and told her I wouldn’t have a submission. Then last night we had correspondence from
church. We were all reminded that we have the power to shine our light during these dark times. Last night the words wouldn’t come and I decided to give
up. But today I began to rethink my decision. Of course a walk helped. I was out in the sunshine and surprisingly it warmed me despite the windy cold
day. I didn’t want to go out in the first place but I had to mail a time sensitive letter. As I walked breathing in the brisk fresh air I decided
that I needed to reach out and write something uplifting. I hope you enjoyed what I’m sharing this month and I hope that no matter what 2021 brings you
will find ways to bring light into your life. Happy New Year! Let’s make it a good one!
I’d love to hear from you. Send email to: livingwithlowvision@gmail.com


Tips and tidbits from the Food Lady



This new year might prompt some to go super healthy and diet and exercise, but the same old lock downs and troubling times are still here. Why not find
recipes that are somewhat healthy comfort foods to fill our bellies. I love good food, and food is comfort. I found some older recipes in my files that
I thought might warm some of your tummies and give you a bit of a mood lift.


Basil Chicken for Two



Makes 2 servings.
2 sheets (12 x 18 inches each) heavy-duty aluminum foil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tsp. fresh basil
1/4 tsp. salt
1 medium yellow squash, sliced
1/2 medium red bell pepper, cut in rings Freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees or grill to medium high.
Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap and pound with the side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin until chicken is
of even thickness.
Center one chicken breast half on each sheet of aluminum foil.
Combine parsley, lemon peel, basil and salt, sprinkle over chicken.
Top with yellow squash and red pepper.
Sprinkle chicken and vegetables with pepper.
Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make two packets.
Place sealed packets on a cookie sheet and bake for 16 to 18 minutes.
If using grill, place sealed packets on grill, cover and cook for 10 to 12 minutes.

Corned Beef Skillet Hash



Makes:4 servings

2 cups chopped cooked corned beef brisket
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked potatoes (about 1 1/2 medium)
1 1/2 cups diced cooked beets (about 12 oz fresh beets)
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup shortening
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except shortening and parsley.
In a 10-inch skillet, heat shortening over medium heat until melted. Spread beef mixture in skillet. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally with wide
spatula, until brown. Sprinkle with parsley.
You can substitute one can (12 ounces) corned beef for the brisket.
You can also substitute One can (15 ounces) sliced beets, drained, and diced, for the cooked beets.
Variation
Skip the beets (and the red flannel) for a tasty meat and potatoes hash.

Crockpot Chicken Stew with Pepper and Pineapple



Serves 4

Ingredients
1 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
4 medium carrots cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons finely chopped gingerroot or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1/2 teaspoons red pepper sauce
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks in juice drained and juice reserved
1 tablespoons cornstarch
1 medium bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
Instructions
Mix all ingredients except pineapple, cornstarch, and bell pepper in a 3 1/2 to 6 quart crockpot. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours
(or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until vegetables are tender and
chicken is no longer pink in center. Mix reserved pineapple juice and
cornstarch until smooth; gradually stir into chicken mixture. Stir in
pineapple and bell pepper. Cover and cook on high heat setting about 15
minutes or until slightly thickened.
The yummy gingery-flavored sauce is delicious! To be sure you get every
drop, spoon the stew over hot cooked rice. To make this great stew
extra-special, just sprinkle with sliced green onions and toasted coconut or
chopped peanuts or cashews.


Miss Beacham’s Raisin bread



I love this bread recipe I got several years ago from a mystery book I downloaded from the NLS website.
From the book “Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin” by Nancy Atherton.

1 ½ cup seedless raisins
1 ½ cups water
1 egg slightly beaten
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, I used olive oil.
1 table spoon grated orange peal
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place raisins and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cool to room temperature.
In a separate bowl, mix the next four ingredients. Combine mixture with cooked raisins and water.
Sift together dry ingredients. Add to mixture beating well.
Pour into a greased bread pan.
Bake about 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out just moist.

Enjoy!
