What do Couches, India, Salsa, Ethiopia, Mothers and VanDwellers Have in Common? Chicago.

Ok, ok we know.  Chicago happened in July and August.  It’s now November.  Wait, what!?  November!?  Time definitely flies when you are not required to monitor it.  Either way, we spent 12 days hanging in and around Chicago and managed to accumulate a few pictures and memories while we were there.  Interested?  Cool.  We knew you would be.  With that... a few of our cherished memories from our time spent in the Windy City:   Read more

Deeper into the Grey: The 2011 Achromatopsia Convention

For those who've just come across our blog, or who might be unfamiliar with Achromatopsia (Meisha's eye condition), the quick rundown:

In the retina, our eyes have rods and cones. In short, cones process light, color and are responsible for much of our visual acuity. Rods are primarily for night vision. Meisha's rods are either missing or non-functioning which means: she is completely colorblind (she sees only in greyscale), extremely light sensitive (she must wear sunglasses at all times in the daylight or brightly lit rooms/buildings) and is legally blind (her vision is 20/200- 10% of that of a fully-sighted person and non-correctable). For a bit more info, definitely check out Achromatopsia.info.
 
Every other year, people with Achromatopsia and their friends/family get together for a convention. It's an opportunity for everyone to connect, share stories and learn about the advances in adaptive technologies and scientific research regarding this rare condition. It's also much, much more than that. Because we both have differing perspectives of our experience at the Achromatopsia Convention, we decided to share both of our stories in one post.

Bending Reality at Old Man's Cave

It began with a soggy afternoon drive through the hills of Southeastern Ohio.  Green, thick, moist, lush and calm.  The trees... Ohio has more trees than I could have possibly imagined.  We exited the freeway and followed the winding roads of the Hocking Hills past pleasant little houses and grassy knolls as I stared out the foggy window contemplating what daily life might be like in this quiet little corner of the world.  Eventually, the twisted road guided us to our parking place just outside the entrance to Old Man's Cave.  We readied ourselves and wandered down the wooden stairs to find ourselves thrust into a magical place devoid of time and reality.   Read more
