Just a quick note: I saw the optometrist yesterday, and we discovered the source of my recent bouts of dizziness. I wear contact lenses, and am fairly blind without them. But it appears that my vision has gotten slightly better. It happens sometimes, as part of the natural aging process; the eye gets reshaped, and occasionally it gets reshaped for the better.
So I got a lower prescription and new contacts, and already the dizziness and confusion seem to be going away. My eyes had been working their muscles to exhaustion trying to un-focus. Anyone who’s ever tried on a pair of glasses that were too strong for them knows what I was dealing with.
No progress on Shiver of the Gate this weekend, though I did do some work on “The Jetty.” But the deadline for 150 pages of SOTG is rapidly approaching.
