Today, I picked up my new glasses. They are larger and more brightly coloured than my previous pair. My prescription is expensive because I need progressive lenses. I have worn glasses for 50 years and although I have worn contact lenses for short periods of time and checked out the Lasik surgery, I keep coming back to the old comfortable spectacles.
My new glasses are handmade by Wissing in Germany. You can buy them in almost any colour combination you want. I love orange, rust and red so I selected frames in these colours. Glasses can be fun and attractive fashion accessories. I once saw a bumper sticker that I wish I had bought. It said,"Librarians make novel lovers." There are many different ways of seeing our world.
