    This is my favourite version of the song.

    I tried an audio book today to give my eyes a break. They're boring. I prefer reading a book if my eyes are feeling up to it or watching the film of the book if they're not.

    Never tried audio books, although kind of thought of getting one or two for long road trips in the car.

    They'd be good for that or for if you're doing something else at the same time as a change from music.

    I'm reading American notes by Charles Dickens.

    I was reading about a girl who was born epileptic & with all senses but had a severe epileptic fit when really young which deprived her of all senses except touch. Despite that she learnt to knit & sew, just by touching someone in the process of knitting & sewing. She then got sent to a special school where they taught her to speak, write & read using just the sense of touch & she was very happy. She must have been an amazing person. It made me think of all the people with all their senses who have a lack of confidence or who keep saying they can't do something & give up trying instead of persevering & then complain. If people with only their sense of touch can do these things what excuse does everyone else have when they have all their senses?
