In a mindless incident I put my contacts in the opposite eyes this morning.

In an unaware episode it didn’t occur to me until Brandon called and said that he had accidentally bumped my contacts and he might have put the “R” cap on the “L” contact.

In a moment of clarity I realized that my eyes were wearing the wrong prescription and no amount of squinting, practicing an eye chart, or adjusting the brightness on my computer screen would fix my sight.

In an unlikely teaching moment I realized that one tiny piece of information changed my entire perspective. My solution for my vision was short sighted.

I can tell you this: I see the world through me. I see everything as it relates to my own blurry vision. I wonder where the blind spots are in my relationships…
