Rate this:
A blind poet describes his relationship with his first guide dog and how it changed his life and gave him a newfound appreciation for travel and independence. Kuusisto was born legally blind, but being raised in the 1950s he was taught to deny his blindness in order to "pass" as sighted. As an adult, he coped with his limited vision until he was laid off.

Here he recounts how partnership with a guide dog changed his life, and the heart-stopping, wondrous adventure that began for him in midlife.
