Lighten Your Blog I just received a chiding from my computer inbox. In a message from one of my few blog followers, my screen reader spoke the subject line as “lighten your blog.” It also referred to my blog that I would soon enter a new career, as an Uber driver with driverless cars on the horizon. Turns out the subject line was “liked your blog.” But ha! My hearing loss heard it otherwise. Maybe my hearing acuity is influenced by guilt???? Do I, Sally Alexander, ever get too opinionated and preachy? Amazing that technology can not only frustrate an humble me, but take me also to task!

About Sally Hobart Alexander

Blinded at the age of twenty-six, I left California and elementary school teaching for life in Pittsburgh, Pa. There, I met my husband, got a Masters' degree in social work, had two kids, now 35 and 32, and became a writer. Surprisingly, the writing career led me full-circle to teaching, and I teach in Chatham University's M.F.A. program and lead two writing critique groups. Always, since the age of 26, I have traveled, not in the stereotypic darkness attributed to blindness, but a mist. My blog then, "traveling through the mist" will deal with issues in my culturally different life as a blind writer, teacher, speaker, and human being.
