“I walked in, was approached, and welcomed by such warm, kind, people.  I relaxed!  No more panic!  The “fun”,  the “joy”, the “excitement” began!!  When I arrived, I was asked what I wanted to do.  I have never curled before so I said I was there to learn to Curl with the Curling Team for the Blind.”

“I am proud of my blindness, because it allows me to see the world in my own unique and beautiful way. I am not traditional, thanks to my sight, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has taken some time, but I have found the ability, through my disability, to see myself for everything I am, and I love every bit of myself. No matter how “strange” I may seem.” ~Jill Stephenson

“As every artist knows and experiences, with persistence comes the magic of completion and the joy of accomplishment. Losing my sight gradually over thirty-five years has given me time to develop a clearer vision of who I am, so I also design presentations as a creative way to share my insights on the journey towards blindness.”
