Random: Interesting link and book related to vision impairment

Okay, so this is just random, but I've found this to be a highly interesting blog. It's about becoming a guide dog instructor.

In the same vein, the book Slackjaw by Jim Knipfel is a darkly humorous memoir by a man with retinitis pigmentosa. The hard cover version had an amazing dust jacket with raised letters you could only see in certain light that said, "You better start learning braille now," words spoken to Knipfel as a boy by a not-so-very avuncular uncle.
