I used to wear glasses –
For fifteen years I wore glasses for long distance, and for reading.
I even had prescription lenses made for my sunglasses.
I couldn’t see without my glasses.
Then I walked the Camino – and I noticed that gradually, I didn’t need my glasses anymore.
While I was walking I was always taking them off whenever I took a photo, and putting them back on after the shot – and after a while it just became bothersome, so I left my glasses off altogether.
And I kept them off.
When I finished the Camino and got back home I was all prepared to start wearing my glasses again, but I found I didn’t really need them.
Today I went to renew my driver’s license.
I needed to take an eyesight test. I decided to give the test a shot without my glasses. And I was surprised to find that I passed!
So I now officially don’t need glasses anymore!
