Breaking it down and connecting the dots: creating common ground where contention rules

By: Peter Altschul

 

Hello everyone.

I’ve dropped back into campbellsworld this afternoon to talk to you about friend and fellow author Peter Altschul’s most excellently written book. I must say I’ve no real clue where to begin when telling you about this magnificent piece of writing.

Is it funny? Yes. Thought provoking? Absolutely. Are there sad parts which are sure to bring a tear or two to your eye? Certainly.

But, none of those questions and their answers do this work justice.

While reading I paused to reflect on the ways in which I’d viewed certain aspects of blindness, the work force, politics, and even Christianity.

I spent some time while walking with Campbell giving thought to some of the situations Peter found himself in concerning how they related to my own life and I even found myself using some of what I read to rework some passages in a current writing project I’m working on.

No matter what side you fall on religiously, politically or sexually I strongly encourage you to read this book.

Blind or “Light dependent” this is a must read.

For those of you who do not know about the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicap please see, bard.loc.gov for all details.

Congratulations to author Peter Altschul for getting your second book onto this fine digital download site thus making it available for those who have disabilities relating to the reading of print to read.

Here is the NLS info and then Peter’s bio and contact information.

    Thanks, Patty, for the kind words. If nothing else, I’ve popularized the term “light-dependent.”
