If you have or have had a blind cat, what do you wish you'd known at first? [more inside]

If I don't figure this oue soon I won't be able to see it anyway

Idea(s) for a tattoo: Stories, myths, folklore, symbols/icons, quotes, lyrics, that deal with blindness or feature blind characters. In the case of a quote, it doesn't necessarily have to be by an actual blind person. [more inside]

A glass darkly

When and why did it become the convention that blind people would wear dark glasses? Would the purpose be to hide the eyes or to act as a signifier of blindness? Is it something that is done less these days and what are the reasons why?

How do the blind see in their dreams?

Entertaining a One-Eyed 7-Year-Old
