To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

In this NEW AGE, the ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY is amazing, and more so for people who do not HEAR well or are LATE DEAFENED. When ROCKY STONE started SHHH (now HLA of America), doubtless he never dreamed of a COCHLEAR IMPLANT or stenographers who do REAL TIME typing that is projected on a screen as someone speaks! We no longer have a bulky box that HANGS around our neck. Old hearing AIDS were ANALOG and mostly just amplified everything, thus were only more NOISE to our EARS. A DIGITAL DEVICE can be programmed for specific sounds by a knowledge-able AUDIOLOGIST! The AUDIO on a TV can be kept low because that medium, and others, now use CLOSED CAPTIONING. A LOOP or an FM system can be installed almost anywhere. It is good that people still learn and use American Sign LANGUAGE and FINGER SPELLING. TEXT messaging and EMAIL have made COMMUNICATION so much easier for us, but those things can fail. Many people use SPEECH READING without realizing it. TINNITUS and NERVE DAMAGE are still problems. We may not sing well, but watch us DANCE! There are now so many ways to ACCOMMODATE people whose ears do not work well. Life is GOOD! We truly live in the BEST of TIMES! How SWEET it is!
