Eyes by Danny Breidenbach
At the ripe young age of 46, my eyesight is getting problematic. Hard to see the small stuff. If I take off my glasses, I can hold my work real close and see the holes BETTER than with my glasses; however, holding anything that close makes my eyes start to cross. My astigmatism just makes it...
