It's been years, and I mean years since I had a really nice pair of sunglasses. Whether it's giving them away to friends and family in need or losing them after a long days at musical festivals, somehow or another, I've never respected them. Shame on me for not willing to adult. I recently gave my last pair away to a friend, and led me to ponder my ways and resolve to being a better friend to my vision and my sunglasses.
I can’t imagine ever being without glasses or even wearing contacts. I’ve been wearing glasses on and off since grade school and they have always been part of my identity. Just recently I was sifting through old family photos and came accross a stack of photos from high school, which was the only time in my life I didn’t wear glasses. I gazed at the glossies and said to myself under my own breath, "what a dork".
