What I'm Reading: CPOSBF

57 ~ stormy skies

The above title is not a typo. This morning I had no poetry time due to an appointment with the eye doctor and got to read the eye chart. No major changes, although bifocals aren't that far around the corner. I learned that I have eye strain from overusing the computer. I admit that I've increased my time in front of the screen two- or three-fold this semester for a number of reasons: more online teaching, grading papers online (trying to go paperless), more poetry time, more blog reading, more Facebook, &etc. The doctor was quite helpful and I now have a plan that involves taking breaks and closing my eyes (a prescription for napping!), as well as using over the counter "natural" tears to help my eyes stay healthy.

Until Wednesday...
